Scope and Content

64 watercolour and coloured ink illustrations with pen and ink detail on cartridge paper. These illustrations constitute a complete suite of artwork for the book, except for the front cover illustration. The illustrations are laid out on the pages as they appear in the first edition published by Julia MacRae Books, in some cases in the form of double-page spreads, and most of the pages are annotated with the relevant page number. Pencil lines on each page delineate the size the pages will be reproduced in the printed book. Some of the illustrations have been mounted for display, possibly for exhibition or sale at some point after the book was published, and in a few cases it appears that pages featuring several illustrations have been cut up, possibly by the publisher.

The illustrations are arranged in the order in which they appear in the printed book. Note is taken at item level of which story the illustrations are from, whether they are mounted for display, and any annotations which appear on each individual page.
