Undated (c. 1902). Humorous rhymes vividly brought to life with 11 full page chromo-lithographic plates, one of which is a double page, and black and white line illustrations on all of the other pages. Large format, 26w x 35h (cms); 36 pp. Blue oval ‘Williams’s Book and Stationery Stores’ stamp on end fly leaf.

Scuffing and chipping to paper overlay at board edges and some staining to the boards. The book has been rebound, using the original paper covered illustrated binding and red cloth spine and retaining the original end papers; 'invisible' repair tape reinforcing to some pages. Internally, very good except p 17, which has been torn and repaired with small loss.
