Jack The Giant Killer

The illustrations in this version of Jack the Giant Killer are identical to those found in this copy, however they are colored completely different. Both are illustrated by J. B Geyser from 1881. I've posted examples from these books below, be sure to go to those two links to see the rest of the artwork.
More Jack the Giant Killer books with many great illustrations can be found on this page.

Check here to see additional illustrations. See Arthur Rackham illustrations of Jack the Giant Killer at SurLaLune Fairy Tales. There's a large collection of other illustrations covering Jack and the Beanstalk and Jack the Giant Killer in their gallery here.

See a previous post I made of Jack and the Giants here and a previous post on Giants from Cornish folklore here.
