Good. Hardback no D/J in good condition, minor bumping to corners. 1989 first New Orchard edition. The Three Jovial Huntsmen originally published in 1880. The original pictures from which this book was published were bought by Beatrix Potter's father for GB 80.00. When Randolph published his book, there was some controversy about the text. Had he plagiarised someone else's work? Why had he not given due credit to the author? The truth was that he used an old Lancashire dialect version of a rhyme which, in various versions, had been circulating for centuries. Randolph Caldecott was born in Chester on 22 March 1846 at 150 Bridge Street (now No 16) where today there is a plaque to commemorate him. His father, John Caldecott, was a Chester business man and an accountant of some note who was married twice and had 13 children. Randolph was his third child by his first wife Mary Dinah (née Brookes). In 1848 the family moved to Challoner House, Crook Street and in 1860 to 23 Richmond Place at Boughton just outside Chester. He spent the last five years of his schooling at The King's School which, in those days, was in the cathedral buildings in the centre of the city. In his early childhood Randolph drew and modelled, mostly animals, and he continued drawing for the rest of his life. There is a small oil painting in Chester of his brother Alfred painted during his school days. On leaving school at the age of fifteen, Randolph went to work at the Whitchurch branch of the Whitchurch & Ellesmere Bank and took lodgings at Wirswall, a village near the town. In his spare time and when he was out visiting clients he was often to be seen walking and riding around the countryside; many of his later illustrations incorporate buildings and scenery of that part of Cheshire. From "the Fox jumps over the Parson's Gate". His love of riding led him to take up hunting and his experiences in the hunting field and his love of animals bore fruit over the years in the masses of drawings and sketches of hunting scenes, many of them humorous. -used books, secondhand books, out of print books, hard to find books, for sale, second-hand books, college books, student books, nonfiction, first edition, exlibrary, signed copies, non-fiction books delivered world wide.
