$15.00

"This volume, the celebration of an epoch, brings together the contents of more than a score of these booklets, including classics like The Comic Adventures of Old Mother Hubbard, The History of the House that Jack Built, and the alliterative Peter Piper's Practical Principles of Plain and Perfect Pronunciation. The traditional tale of the Old Woman and her Pig appears here with the embellishment that caught the eye of the poet John Clare. The tale of Dame Wiggins of Lee is set with the pictures that Ruskin cherished all his life. The earliest known collection of limericks is reprinted in full for the first time, as also is the collection that inspired Lear to write his 'nonsenses'."

Publisher's tan cloth with red lettering to spine; extremities bumped. In original pictorial dust jacket; price-clipped, very minor edgewear and fading. Interior is bright.  (38826)   Please RESHELVE This.
