Famed illustrator Randolph Caldecott (1846 - 1886) was a frequent contibutor to the pages of the "Graphic" after the succes of his illustrations of Washington Irving's "Old Christmas"; besides other occasional contibutions, nearly every Summer and Chrismas Number was enlivened by the designs of his joyous pencil.
