Notes

Early printing of this charming example of Barker's illustrations, in which the fairies help a young girl support her mother through the provision of necklaces. Whilst Barker "was a devotee of the Pre-Raphaelites, particularly Edward Burne-Jones, and her work owes a debt to Beatrix Potter and Kate Greenaway" she nevertheless introduced her distinct style to the world of children's illustrations and her books "remain very popular and have been collected in many anthologies" (ODNB).
