A charming little Victorian painting book for children, The Little Wide Awake painting book.
There are very detailed colour illustrations throughout and the same illustrations provided again in monochrome so that they can be painted over.
This has never been painted in and all the illustrations are ready to do, much like a colouring book for today but with much more detail and beauty.
There is no publisher or author but the book dates to c1883, it was probably based on the popular Victorian children's story book also named Little Wide Awake by Mrs Sale Barker which was published in 1880.
Internally the pages are nice and clean, the front cover including the pictorial is in very nice condition and the binding is strong, there is some water type damage to the back outer cover but this in no way detracts.
A beautiful little book still waiting after all these years to be completed.
