The first Thomson edition. This edition includes many illustrations, both plates and vignettes, by the Irish illustrator Hugh Thomson. He is famous for his pen and ink illustrations, of which there are many fine examples here. In his career he illustrated many notable editions of famous authors such as Jane Austen, Charles Dickens, and J. M. Barrie. A Kentucky Carnival is a work heavily influenced by Allen's childhood experiences. Allen spent his youth in Lexington during the Antebellum era, the American Civil War and the Reconstruction periods.
