Description: A scarce collection of poems and nursery rhymes which, unusually, only chooses to credit Marjorie H. Greenfield as the author of one such poem – Things I Like. All others are the work of Robert Louis Stevenson – these include The Land of Story-Books, At the Seaside, Picture Books in Winter, The Unseen Playmate, and My Shadow.

Illustrated with magical full-page colour reproductions of Victorian children's book paintings from the P. F. Sunman Nostalgia Collection.

Glazed pictorial boards repeat jacket design and are in excellent condition. The jacket is very lightly scuffed along its upper extremities, and has a few 'invisible' scratches on the front and rear. Otherwise the wrapper is complete and undamaged. Pages are ever so slightly creased from handling, but otherwise remain in superb condition: crisp, bright, glossy to the touch, and free from any foxing, marking, or tanning.

Front endpaper is missing, so priced accordingly.

Measures 28 cm × 20 cm (11.2″ × 8″). Large 4to. Unpaginated.

Price: £18.00
