CALDECOTT, Randolph  (1846-1886) – creator of source image(s), all 9 slides


This set apparently appears in the 1913 Newton catalogue, listed with other Caldecott sets under the code letters WQ. However the alternative versions of the slides illustrated here carry the code BIB, which was not issued until the 1920s; there may have been two versions of this set.
