Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes (Ward, Lock & Co., Limited) The Sunshine Series
Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes
Ward, Lock & Co. Limited, [Not Dated] circa 1950s
A volume in the ‘Sunshine Series’ with sixteen colour plates. The earlier  twenty-four plate ‘Sunshine Series’ edition credits Margaret W. Tarrant as the illustrator. The plates in this edition are clearly the Tarrant illustrations but have been slightly ‘re-worked’ (…by an in-house artist?), presumably for the more modern fifties generation.
This copy stamped to the title page indicating a showroom copy of the publisher’s.
Hardback in dustwrapper. 128pp plus sixteen colour plates. 10 x 7.5 inches approx. (251mm x 192mm).
Dustwrapper a touch dusty and marked; showing some light wear and rubbing. Boards nice and clean, very fresh; pages a touch dusty in places but generally clean.
Overall, a particularly well preserved copy – quite lovely.
