Item Description: Munroe and Francis, Boston [circa 1835 - 1845], 1833. Cloth Over Boards / Gilt. Book Condition: Very Good. Hand Colored Plates Throughout (illustrator). First Edition, Early Printing. 5.5" / 14.3 Cm Tall. 95 Pp + Ad On P 96. 1833 Copyright Date, Title Page With "Boston: Printed And Published By Munroe And Francis". In The Rare Binding Of Brown Cloth Over Stiff Card, Covers Blindstamped And With Gilt "Goose's Melodies". Hardcover Deluxe Edition With Hand-Colored Plates. Estimated Printing Over Several Years 1833 Of Over 100,000 Copies; Only 1 Is Shown In Worldcat And Only About 12 Copies Known To The Bibliographer (Bleiler) In 1970, Although There Are Additional Copies Known, For Example At The American Antiquarian Society And The New York Historical Society, Almost All Known Copies Are In Bound In Printed Paper Wrappers. An Early Modern "Mother Goose" For Children Printed In America, With Extensive Borrowings From Earlier Editions, And Itself Extensively Reprinted And Borrowed From By Other Publishers In The Nineteenth Century, Still Quite Readable Today For Adults And Children, Preserving The Rhymes In Nearly The Versions Used At Present. The Difficult Bibliography Of This Book Is Provided At Length By Bleiler In His Introduction And Bibliographical Appendix To The 1970 Dover Reprint. Briefly: He Describes, In Apparent Date Order, The Hamilton, Rosenbach, Brown, And Dover Types; The First Two Were Known To Him Only In Single Copies, The Brown And Dover Versions [The Dover Version In Both Boston And New York Imprints] In Several Copies Each. This Example Appears To Be A Deluxe, Hardcover, Hand-Colored Mixed State Apparently Issued Between Bleiler's His Brown And Dover States, With Most But Not All Text Corresponding To The Dover Version, With The Following Points: The Title Page Shows The Boston Imprint Of Munroe And Francis; P. 2 Has "Billy", Unlike Hamilton But Like Brown And Dover; The Illustration On P. 36 Is Upside Down, As In The Hamilton And Rosenbach Copies, But This Was Corrected In The Dover Edition, So This Printing Apparently Is After His "Brown" Version But Precedes The Dover Variety; P. 11 Text Is "Sing, Sing!", With Final Period, This Period Noted As Lacking In The Dover Edition; And Pp 55 And 84 Have The Illustrations That Bleiler Notes As Present Only In The "Earlier" Munroe And Francis Printings. Page 12 Has "Bye Baby Bunting", As In The Dover Variety, And Unlike The "Hi Diddle" In The Brown Variety. The Brown Cloth Binding Is Similar But Not Identical To That Cloth Binding Which Bleiler Indicates Was Used For A Hardcover Edition Of The Dover Variety, And The Illustrations Are In Four Colors [Blue, Green, Yellow, And Red] Lacking The Fifth Color, Orange, Which Bleiler Ascribes To The Hardcover Printing Of The Dover Variety. The Contents Are Not Similar To The Later Whitmore Or Hislop States, Of Course. The Points Thus Indicate An Early Printing, Later Than Brown Example Cited By Bleiler But Earlier Than The Dover Example. Light Wear, No Chips Or Tears, Cover Gilt Bright, Small Corner Crease At Lower Front Tip, Hinges Solid Binding Intact, Pages With Some Wear But No Tears Or Losses, Colors Bright, An Exceptionally Nice Example Of A Scarce And Important Early American Children's Book.

Item Description: London. Sir Richard Phillips and Co. No date. (Circa 1827.), 1827. vi,[1], 2-353pp. With 13 plates each bearing 2 hand-coloured engravings. Contemporary, or slightly later, half calf over marbled boards. One plate slightly cut-down where previously loose; wood-engraved plate, which is integral to page 353 missing as usual; front hinge repaired; else an excellent copy of this very difficult title. Moon 166 [3]. This collection, first published in 1818, is one of the most elusive and difficult early fairy tale collections to find complete. So far as one can ascertain only the first edition of 1818 had the wood-engraved image at page 353, but all recorded examples of that edition lack at least one other plate. Most later editions â€" as in this copy â€" do not require the image on page 353, despite the plate list calling for it; but, equally, nearly all copies lack at least one other plate (2 images).

"The Ideal Child is the Legacy Left Us By This Remarkable Artist" First Issue, In the Scarce First Issue Box[SMITH, Jessie Willcox, illustrator]. The Jessie Willcox Smith Mother Goose. A Careful and Full Selection of the Rhymes. With Numerous Illustrations In full color and black and white by. New York: Dodd, Mead & Company, [1914]. First edition, first issue (with pictorial peach endpapers with white geese and babies in mob-caps). Oblong quarto (8 1/2 x 11 3/4 inches; 215 x 299 mm.). [2] blank; 173; [3] blank pp. Twelve full-page color plates, five full-page monotone plates, and numerous line drawings throughout the text. Original black cloth, spine lettered in white, pictorial label on front cover with an additional color plate of mother Goose in straw bonnet sheltering two children under her wings. A very fine copy in the original first-issue pictorial box (with "Net $2.50") with the original glassine (fragmented) wrapper. This is the first time that we have seen a first issue in the original pictorial box (neatly repaired at corners); it has become a vanishingly scarce occasion when both are found together."The ideal child is the legacy left us by this remarkable artist" (Michael S. Schnessel, Jessie Wilcox Smith).Illustrating over forty books during her career, Jessie Wilcox Smith (1863-1935), was born in Philadelphia and studied at the Pennsylvania Academy of Fine Arts. She later studied with Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute of Arts and Sciences. "By 1905, her clients now included Century, Collier's Weekly, Leslie's, Harper's, McClure's, Scribners, and [The] Ladies' Home Journal."As the book and magazine commissions continued, the focus of her work began to gel. Children became more and more the subject, whether it was expose articles like 'While the Mother Works: A Look at the Day Nurseries of New York' (Century, 1902), books like the Scribners Classic edition of A Child's Garden of Verses (1905), or just a series of plates like 'The Seven Ages of Childhood' done for seven successive issues of The Ladies' Home Journal in 1908-9. Though she never married nor had children of her own, they became the center of her life and work."It was on the covers of Good Housekeeping that most people became familiar with her art. Month after month, from December of 1917 through March of 1933, a new Jessie Willcox Smith image was on the newsstands and in countless homes. She painted the universal child, but the dresses and play suits they wore helped shape the dressing habits of a generation of children". Old Mother Goose,When she wanted to wander,Would ride through the airOn a very fine gander.Jack's mother came in,And caught the goose soon,And mounting its back,Flew up to the moon.Nudelman, A39.

Item Description: CONOVER,CHRIS. ORIGINAL ART: MOTHER GOOSE AND THE SLY FOX / VILLAGE SCENE. Offered here is a finished watercolor used in Conover's book published in 1989 entitled Mother Goose and the Sly Fox. The piece is large - image measure 19" wide x 8 1/2" high on artist board 22 x 11 1/2, signed. It is incredibly wonderful both in imagry and execution. The piece is an elaborate rendering of the village with stores, restaurants and even a herring kiosk for the cats. Across the river we see the "bad" part of town where the foxes live, practicing 3-card monte. It appears in the book as a double page spread on pages 8-9, Conover has been illustrating children's books since 1974. Her work is noted for rich colors and incredible attention to detail, some of which is executed using a magnifying glass for accuracy. There is plenty to look at but without the overcrowding that hampers many books. Bookseller Inventory # 34288
