Title

Cinderella or The Little Glass Slipper

Description

The Cinderella Series was among the McLoughlin Brothers output listed in its earliest extant publisher’s catalog from 1867 and remained a fixture in the firm’s line through 1920. Cinderella versions published during the heyday years at the end of the century are often glamourous, large-format affairs, and were designed using a sophisticated palette of shades, as seen in this 1897 edition. The book reflects McLoughlin’s commitment to lithography as its chief form of color print technology in 1895. The costumes on Cinderella, the prince, and the footman are historicized, perhaps reflecting the popularity of Edward Burne Jones’s designs for Robin Hood and Chaucer’s Works published by William Morris’s Kelmscott press in the 1890s.
The gift of Herbert H. Hosmer, 1978
