This illustration of Cinderella letting rats out of a trap so that her fairy godmother can turn them into footmen appears in the folio Aunt Louisa Big Picture Series, which is coveted by today’s collectors of McLoughliniana. It features six full-page illustrations chromolithographed in robust shades of red, yellow, and green that are comparable to books and games issued during the firm’s heyday between 1870 and 1900.
