Description
One of six plates for "Hop-O'My-Thumb and the Seven-League Boots," the first of four books in the series, "George Cruikshank's Fairy Library."

The three other books in the series are: "The History of Jack and the Bean-stalk" (David Bogue, 1854), "Cinderella and the Glass Slipper" (David Bogue, 1854, see 1989.21.1943A), and "Puss in Boots" (Routledge, Warne & Routledge and F.
