Mother Goose; The Old Nursery Rhymes
1913, with 13 colour plates by Arthur Rackham
Undated . First edition, hardback bound in the original decorative boards. 21 × 15cm, 160pp.
Arthur Rackham illustrates these lovely old nursery rhymes with 13 tissue-guarded coloured plates and numerous black and white ink drawings, both full-page and within the text.
A reference copy only. The cloth binding is heavily worn, rubbed and bumped. A previous owner has made numerous pencil annotations to the text (these are, however, of interest being relevant to the study of nursery rhymes). The inner binding is pulled in places. On the plus side, all colour plates are present (as are the b&w ones) and are in good condition.Sold
