Title

Cinderella or The Glass Slipper

Description

Cinderella was one of the first picture books issued by John McLoughlin Jr. after he took over Elton & Company. He used the blocks originally owned by his contemporary Edward Dunigan in the 1840s, but the young McLoughlin made sure that every illustration had multiple colors. McLoughlin Brothers issued another printing of the same images and story in 1858 shortly after John and his brother Edmund established their partnership.

When compared to the version of Cinderella published by the Albany firm of E.H. Pease & Co. a few years earlier, the similarities in the woodcuts are too obvious to ignore.
The gift of Charles Henry Taylor
