Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes

Ward, Lock & Co. Limited, [Not Dated] circa 1950s

A volume in the ‘Sunshine Series’ with sixteen colour plates. The earlier [1929] 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.
