This is a print.

The Blue Dwarf A Tale of Mystery Love and Crime was written by Percy B. St John. It is an action-packed tale of highwaymen, Scottish Jacobites and Red Indians. This is basically a bizarre re-telling of the legend of the famous Highwayman Dick Turpin as sometimes helped and sometimes hindered by the titular Blue Dwarf. Most peculiar.

This is an example of the art prints to be found bound in (thus the creases) or given away free with the notorious Penny Dreadfuls that entertained the masses in the 19th Century.

There were 37 issues of The Blue Dwarf later collected into three bound editions just as today comics "floppies" are collected as "graphic novels". c. 1885. Tape on reverse of creases.
