“Living in that childish wonder is a most beautiful feeling – I can so well remember it. There was always something more – behind and beyond everything – to me, the golden spectacles were very, very big.”

Kate Greenaway

 

Kate Greenaway was one of the most prolific English children’s literature illustrators during the 19th-century. Her distinct style was so popular and frequently imitated, that she is quoted as saying, “I have made it a rule for a long time, not to part with the copyright of my drawings, for I have been so copied, my drawings reproduced and sold for advertisements and done in ways I hate.”

 

This early 20th-century printing of “Little Ann” is filled with color illustrations of charming Greenaway artwork with such titles of poems such as “Dirty Jim,” “Meddlesome Matty,” and “Mischief,” outlining the results of moral errors. Although individual poems are not ascribed, the work contains poems by Ann Taylor (1782-1866), Jane Taylor (1783-1824), Isaac Taylor (1759-1829), and Adelaide O’Keeffe (1776-1855). This collection was first published in 1883 having been engraved and printed by Edmund Evans.
