Introduction The illustrated storybooks in this catalogue can roughly be divided into four groups, each of which belong to a certain period. The earliest period is fable books, followed by the early British children’s books and the gift books of ‘The Golden Age of Illustration’. The catalogue concludes with the contemporary modern picture book. It is helpful to know more about the general history of these periods in order to understand the context of the books in this catalogue. To this end, this introduction contains a brief guide of the history of the illustrated storybook.

Fable Books and the Early Fairy Tale Our enchanted journey through the history of the illustrated storybook begins with the fable. But what exactly is a fable? Generally speaking, a fable is a short story about animals with human characteristics and its goal is to convey a moral to the reader. The origin of this narrative form can be traced back to the sixth century BC. It is thought that the first fables were written by the Greek slave Aesop. Although no-one knows if he really existed, and none of his writings have survived, numerous tales are credited to him. Aesop began a rich tradition of fable writing. Apart from Aesop, the two most famous fable writers are probably the Roman slave Phaedrus (first century AD) and the French author Jean de la Fontaine (1621-1695). Both drew on Aesop’s tales. Other less known authors used fables as a medium to express their own beliefs. Pieter de la Court (1618-1685) for instance, used fables to push his political agenda in times of censorship, while Antoinette Ockerse (1762-1828) used the stories to educate pious youth. As well as fables, fairy tales started to become popular in the 17th century. Writers like Charles Perrault (1628-1703) laid the literary foundation for the fairy tale genre. In opposition to Jean de la Fontaine and the other classicists, Perrault thought that modern literature was better and more valuable than classical literature. Although he still used animals as humans in his stories, his fictions are seen more as folktales than fables. Throughout the ages, fables have been a great source of inspiration for illustrators, but in comparison to other illustrated subjects, the early illustrations for fables were quite conservative. Artists like Jacobus Buys (1724-1801) and Reinier Vinkeles (1741-1816) made beautiful engraved plates, but there was great similarity in how the scenes were depicted. Between the 15th and 19th centuries, there was little to no evolution in the way fables were depicted. It was only when illustrators like J.J. Grandville (1803-1847) got their hands on the stories, that the fable illustrations became more varied. After that, all kinds of witty figures entered the stage.

I Catalogue 38 / Illustrated Storybooks


As an addition to this chapter, a couple of works by Gustave Doré (1832-1883) have been included. Although these works do not strictly fall under the definition of fables and fairy tales, we added them because of their illustrative tradition.

Early British Children’s Books We jump forward in time to 19th century Britain. The industrial age brought a new worldview to the British Empire. A small group of wealthy Victorians called the shots while the large majority of the population led a less glorious existence. They may have had jobs, but the circumstances in which they lived were far below standard. The arts also suffered under the encroachment of industry. Inventiveness was nowhere to be found. At the end of the century a group of socialist artists felt it was time for change. ‘The Arts and Crafts Movement’ was founded under the leadership of designer and philosopher, William Morris (1834-1896). The Movement believed that the conditions of the working class would improve if they came into contact with aesthetic objects more often. The movement’s goal was “Bringing art to the common people”. One of the first and most influential followers of the movement was the illustrator Walter Crane (1845-1915). Crane was a student of the socialist engraver W. J. Linton (1812-1897) and dedicated his life to idealistic illustration, design and the applied arts. Crane got his inspiration from a broad spectrum of existing styles like Japanese prints, Medieval/Renaissance prints and the art of the Pre-Raphaelites. The last is beautifully visible in the faces of Crane’s figures. The children’s books illustrated by Crane were extraordinary in themselves because he did not divide the book into text and illustrations. He combined these two to make one piece of art, a synthesis of the arts, a picture book in the modern sense of the word. This meant that Crane designed every part of the book himself. He always signed his works with his initials and a small drawing of a crane (bird). For his children’s books, Crane frequently collaborated with the talented wood engraver and color printer Edmund Evans (18261905). Another illustrator who also collaborated with Evans was Crane’s competitor, Kate Greenaway (1846-1901). Greenaway was not directly involved in the ‘Arts and Crafts Movement’, but was seen more as a follower of Oscar Wilde’s ‘Aesthetic movement’. Her illustrations were based on her own childhood memories. She drew innocent children playing outdoors, dressed in ‘Victorian’ Regency clothing. These costumes, invented by Greenaway, became so popular that a London manufacturer started producing them.

II Catalogue 38 / Illustrated Storybooks


Greenaway’s illustrations are wonderfully soft and endowed with child-like virtue and charm. Crane and Greenaway are key figures in late 19th century book illustration because of their break with tradition. They and the British illustrator Randolph Caldecott (1846-1886), were the first to start working with black outlines and soft flat colors instead of the more sketchy style of contemporary illustrators like John Tenniel (Alice in Wonderland). Crane and Greenaway stood at the dawn of the modern picture book. But before this period could really flourish, another important era was emerging, ‘The Golden Age of Illustration’.

The Golden Age of Illustration Shortly after the world became acquainted with Crane and Greenaway, a new age in the history of illustration emerged: the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’. This was a time in which the illustrated book was elevated to a new artistic level. It was the time of so called ‘gift books’. These gift books were luxurious, bound copies containing tales edited by popular British writers and poets. The beautiful stories, which were not necessarily written for children, were accompanied by illustrations with a high artistic value. The Golden Age of Illustration can be traced back to 1891, the year in which the leader of the ‘Arts and Crafts Movement’, William Morris (1834-1896), set up the Kelmscott press. He used this private press to produce books that were purely artistic in the way that they were printed, bound and designed. With famous followers like Sir Edward Burne-Jones (1833-1898), the books produced by the Kelmscott press became immensely popular. Another group that had a lot of influence at the beginning of this golden age was Oscar Wilde’s (1854-1900) ‘Decadent Movement’, also known as the ‘Aesthetic Movement’. The illustrators, writers and poets in this group came together under the motto ‘l’art pour l’art’ (art for art's sake) and worked in a very extravagant fashion. Among its most famous followers were illustrators like Aubrey Beardsley (1872-1898), Laurence Housman (18651959) and Charles Ricketts (1866-1931). The illustrations of both movements were clearly influenced by broad range of historical styles. These then blended with the contemporary Art Nouveau. At the beginning of the 20th century, new printing techniques gave rise to a revolution in book illustration. The photogravure technique made it possible to make exact reproductions of detailed watercolors without losing the vibrancy of their colors.

III Catalogue 38 / Illustrated Storybooks


Two artists that took full advantage of these innovations were the illustrators Arthur Rackham (1867-1939) and Edmund Dulac (1882-1953). Their fantasy illustrations can be seen as the most acclaimed works of their time and are still to this day, more than a hundred years later, incredibly popular. Besides using new technical innovations, Rackham and Dulac were the first illustrators to work in close collaboration with The Leicester Gallery. This gallery exhibited the original watercolors at the same time as the books were published. Each illustrator drew more and more on other sources for inspiration. Rackham focused on Teutonic tales for which he used a pallet of dark earthy tones and swirling lines, while Dulac looked to the Middle East as his source of inspiration. Others like Kay Nielsen (1886-1957) took more interest in contemporary styles like art deco. Gift books remained very popular until the First World War, when interest for these luxury editions decreased rapidly.

The Dawn of the Modern Picture Book After World War Two, expensive gift books started to fall by the wayside. The picture books of the type in the early British period, made a comeback. The illustrations in these books were not only a representation of the story, but sometimes told a different story than the text. This resulted in a shift of the text/image ratio, more pictures and less text. The audience for whom the books were intended, changed too. While the illustrated books were primarily intended for adults, the picture books were mainly produced for children. Another important shift took place in the relationship between the author and illustrator. The line between artist and author started to blur, and a crop of famous graphic designers set out to write and illustrate picture books as a way of exploring visual thinking. A beautiful example is Alfred Listal’s (1877-1956) book Wat Lisette droomde. He invented the story and made the illustrations. The chapter about the modern picture book shows the broad spectrum of book types included in the genre. This chapter aims to give a good outline of the history of the picture book, however there is still much more to discover. Sanne Hansler

The French author Jean de la Fontaine (1621-1695) was one of the most influential fable writers of all time. Although his stories are loosely based on the work of old masters like Aesop and Phaedrus, they were of such quality that they became immensely popular. De la Fontaine belonged to the Classicists, which meant that he took his inspiration from Greek and Roman antiquity. These views made him an opponent of Charles Perrault (1628-1703), the other famous story writer of the time, who thought that modern literature was superior to that of the olden days. The illustrations of Jan Punt and Reinier Vinkeles are a beautiful addition to De la Fontaine’s text. Vinkeles, who was the student of Punt, outshone his master later in life with his realistic nature engravings. Reference no. 8711 (L2244) ₏ 477.00

Goeree with a medallion of the portrait of Princess Amalia van Nassau. The portrait of the translator, David van Hoogstraten (1658-1724), is engraved on a folded plate by Pieter van Gunst (1658-1731) and Arnold Boonen (1669-1729).

As the title describes, Phaedrus was a Roman slave that served under the reign of Emperor Augustus (1st century AD). He used parts of the Aesopian fables as inspiration for his stories. When put into context the fables can be seen as a political indictment against the regime under which he lived.

The contents are in good shape. 7.5 x 11.5 cm, [6] 1-121 [3, cat. of little books published by E. Newbery] pp. Engraved title page of the story The Knights and six woodcuts throughout the text. This rare ‘new’ edition contains 17 stories that include fables and fairy tales. The first and second edition of this book were published in 1770. The stories were rewritten and brought together by Solomon Winlove. It is thought that Winlove is a pseudonym used by the Irish scholar and author Oliver Goldsmith (1730-1774). Goldsmith is better known as the writer of the novel The Vicar of Wakefield (1766) and the poem The Deserted Village (1771). As Winlove, the author mainly focussed on moral and instructional stories, for example in his version of the Holy Bible for children (1772) or The pleasing moralist (1798). The ‘new’ edition of this beautifully written and composed book is very rare. Reference no. 58776 (B2363) € 477.00

His best known stories include Little Red Riding Hood, Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, which would later be made immortal by Walt Disney. The engraved plates are designed by the French painter, sculptor and illustrator Gustave Doré. Doré is well known for his illustrative contribution to many classic stories like Cervantes' Don Quixote and Poe's The Raven. They have a distinct Romantic style.

The stories of the Arabian Nights were very popular in late 19 and early 20 century literature. Their mystical Eastern subjects were a source of endless inspiration for contemporary illustrators. The British illustrator John Dixon Batten took this opportunity to create some of his most beautiful works. His five full page plates in this book show the synergy between Art Nouveau illustration and Middle Eastern motifs. It is as if this book contains five separate works of art. More Fairy Tales from the Arabian Nights is a selection of stories from Galland’s Arabian Nights (1821) edited by E. Dixon. In the introduction, Dixon mentions that the stories are intended for “virginibus puerisque”, which means that they were edited for children and women (sic!). IDnumber 37710 (B2322) € 53.00

The overall condition of the book is good. 22 x 28.5 cm, [6] [4] list of ill., unpaged, with I-CX Quatrains (2 per page, recto only, ex. Ill.). With 20 illustrations tipped-in polychrome by Edmund Dulac, protected by tissue guard. The book also contains a “Notice”, which reads that Dulac’s original water colors will be exhibited at the Leicester Galleries from October to November 1909. This book can be seen as one of the great masterpieces of the ‘Golden Age of Illustration’. Edmund Dulac’s illustrations show a beautiful Middle-Eastern world in earthy colors and Art Nouveau lines. The illustrations are tipped-in on decorated paper so that the images are framed by gold exotic patterns. The scenes that are depicted at night show Dulac’s famous kinds of blue, which his contemporaries appropriately called ‘Blue du Lac’ (blue as the lake). The original author, Omar Khayyam, was born in 1048 in the Persian town of Nishapur. He was, in his time, a highly respected scientist specialised in astronomy and geometry. In its most extensive form, the Rubáiyát of Omar Khayyam has 110 quatrains (Quatrain / quatrain / Ruba'i). These are poems of four verses which may consist of two rhyming sounds, mostly a-b-b-a, but also a-b-a-b or other schemes. Edward Fitzgerald’s translation is perfect as he stayed true to the content and rhythm of the original verses. “Here with a little Bread beneath the Bough, A Flask of Wine, a Book of Verse, and Thou Beside me singing in the Wilderness.

The editor of this book, Gleeson White (1851-1898), is mainly known for his writing of critical books and articles about graphic design and art. White was part of a group of influential writers and artists that dominated the changing appearance of British art at the end of the 19th century. After he had worked as an editor for several magazines he was asked to be the founding editor for The Studio. This magazine about art and design is still seen as the breakthrough opportunity for great illustrators like Aubrey Vincent Beardsley (1872-1898), Charles Rickets (1866-1931) and Edmund Dulac. The Studio was influenced by the ideals of the Arts and Crafts movement. In The Pageant, White combined the great literature of his time with the art of upcoming artists. It contains stories and illustrations by William Butler Yeats (1865-1938), James McNeil Whistler (1834-1903), Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) and Sir Edward BurneJones (1833-1898).

There were little to no examples available, so Dulac created his own style. His illustrations are influenced by Japanese prints and Persian miniatures, although the faces of the characters still look very Art Nouveau.

There are 32 other smaller illustrations placed throughout the text. This book is a miniature version of the original Goblin Market, also illustrated by Housman, published in 1893. This rare book (only two other copies available online) is a beautiful example of the early ‘Golden Age’. Goblin Market is a poem by Christina Rossetti (1830-1894, sister of the famous pre-Raphaelite artist Gabriel Rossetti) that she composed in 1859. It tells the story of two sisters, one of whom is seduced by the goblins to try their fruits. At this point the story takes a dramatic turn. The poem was well debated by literature scholars throughout the century. Some see Rossetti’s writing as an expression of early feminism and sexuality, while others see it as an indictment against the Victorian era. Housman’s illustrations intensify the events that take place. His swirly lined monsters give a sinister appeal to the story. IDnumber 60879 (B2362) € 159.00

Van Deventer was a good friend of Helene Kröller-Müller (1869-1939), one of the first women in Europe to put together a large art collection. Helene Kröller-Müller had many of Bauer’s works, and this was the reason for Van Deventer to publish these illustrations by M.A.J. (Marius) Bauer, as a deluxe gift book for his friends. Bauer was a Dutch artist who found great inspiration in his trips to the Middle East and North Africa. He mostly made etchings, watercolors and oil paintings of Eastern cities, camels, elephants, Arabs and mosques.

When the boat on which the plantation owner’s child is travelling is shipwrecked, Jocko rescues the child and brings him back home.

Spreekmeester, Isidore Leonard [pseudo. Vadertjes Brombeer] Reinaard de Vos spelt voor huisbaas, Een verhaal van VadertjeBrombeer. Amsterdam, De Bezige Bij, 1946. Illustrated cardboard front and back with an metal spiral binding. The pages are slightly browned and the front board shows light foxing. 27,5 x 19 cm, unpaged [30 pp.]. With fullpage color plates and smaller illustrations in black throughout the text. This witty book tells the story of a witch called Amalia, who leaves home to take the road to a witch convention. While she is away the cunning fox Reinaard tries to rent out her place, which results in a lot of confusion and hilarity. The story is beautifully illustrated by Spreekmeester (1914-2000). He uses a stamp-like style that gives a feathery effect to his pictures. The bright colors that he uses in his full-page illustrations complement this style in a great way.

Anton & Co., n.d. [approx. 1925]. Square hardcover with linen spine and paper covered boards. The front board is illustrated with a decorative floral pattern, on which the illustration of two young girls is mounted. The spine shows a small tear in the middle and the board edges are slightly worn, overall in good condition. 20.5 x 21.5 cm, 40 pp. With four tipped-in polychrome illustrations and several black engravings among the text. Wie die liebe Sonne ihren Tag zubrachte is a German translation of the Dutch book Hoe ‘t zonnetje haar dag besteedde (1923). The four polychrome illustrations by Rie Cramer (1887-1977) show a beautiful image of childhood in soft colors and hard lines. As an illustrator, Cramer was inspired by English artists like Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac. Their style is mainly reflected in her use of color and lines. Cramer was - and still is - one of the greatest Dutch illustrators. IDnumber 43876 (B2331) â‚Ź 26,50

Met 10 chromolithographiën. Amsterdam, gebroeders Binger, n.d. [approx. 1872]. Colored illustrated cardboard hardcover with linen spine. The edges are worn and the spine shows some small tears.

The brightness and humour of these prints makes it a very special example of 19th century Spanish illustration, in which we can clearly see French influence. IDnumber 38070 (B2339) € 53.00
