The years 1855-1880, generally referred to as 'The Sixties', saw some of the finest and most significant contributions to wood-engraved book and magazine illustration in Britain.
In this major survey, Paul Goldman has selected 31 artists who have created some of the most important work of the period. Devoting a chapter to each of the five groups he identifies, Goldman provides a critical commentary on every artist, followed by a checklist of the books they themselves illustrated or those to which they contributed.
More detailed bibliographic information is included in an index of illustrated books arranged by author. This index also contains locations of copies in public collection in the UK, USA and Australia. The index of magazine illustrations, arranged chronologically within each periodical, gives the precise date and position of all the magazine designs mentioned.
This is an authoritative and descriptive reference work for all scholars in the field, and is illustrated with over 230 black and white illustrations which capture the delicacy and the variety of Victorian illustrative work.
Each of the 100 copies of the limited edition includes three separate prints made from original Victorian wood-blocks. The prints are contained in a sleeve which is inserted in a slipcase with the book.
