Description: "Kate Greenaway wrote this collection of poems nearly one hundred years ago, yet her verses and finely detailed illustrations of children hopping and skipping, hitting hoops and fishing in the river, picking flowers and playing ring-a-roses are as fresh as ever."
Pictorial glazed card covers have some minimal wear to the front (refer to image), but are in otherwise excellent condition for their age. Internally, the book is superb: no foxing or other marking, with just the slightest hint of tanning – which actually lends a nice touch of patina to the Victorian illustrations and verses.
Measures 21 cm × 15.5 cm (8.4″ × 6.2″). 8vo. Unpaginated.
