Grant Richard’s Children’s Annual, 1904

A selection of illustrations from a typical high quality children’s annual, including first-rate work by Patten Wilson, W. Heath Robinson, Mary Tourtel, et. Scores of children’s annuals were published in the early years of this century (and indeed still are). Many are long forgotten (and rightly so), but some were excellent anthologies of children’s literature and illustrations. This and Blackie’s Children’s Annual, 1905 are some of the best examples.
