Mother Goose or the Old Nursery Rhymes

London: Frederick Warne and Co. Ltd., n.d. (post 1918). Hardcover. 12mo. 52 (2)pp. Glazed pictorial boards, the upper board with the title in black and a picture of a young maid with milking pail enclosed within trellis border. Page (53) lists Rose Place as the address for Edmund Evans. Bottom corner of the upper bard and bottom of rear board worn else this is a near fine copy. In dustwrapper which has several closed tears and lacks a small piece at the tip of the spine, extending onto toe rear, as well as a small chip at the bottom of the front. Still quite presentable.


Warne added 'Ltd.' in 1918, so this copy is clearly later. See Schuster 140, 4c) for the edition with points to match this copy, including the address of Evans, but 4c) calls for glassine wrappers. The presence of a printed dustwrapper suggests a later date. Near fine / Poor. Item #19337

Price: $100.00
