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 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 The Brown Example Cited By Bleiler But Earlier Than The Dover Example Which He Cites. 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: 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

Item Description: McClure Phillips & Company, New York, New York, 1901. Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good. Denslow, William W. (illustrator). 1st Edition. 4to - over 9¾ - 12" tall. First Edition in the original pictorial boards, professionally restored by a book conservator. This is the 1st edition, 1st printing with Humpty Dumpty on the verso of the dedication leaf, with the copyright date of 1901 as well as the matching date on the title page date. Edited and illustrated by Denslow. His later illustrations, in a similar style, for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, earned him wide acclaim from readers and critics, alike, earning him a hallowed place in the history of 20th century book illustration. In this volume, each left side page has the text of nursery rhyme hand lettered by Fred W. Goudy. Facing each rhyme, on the right side, is a Denslow color plate in bright colors, printed on a green background. The text pages are illustrated in color. With pictorial end papers. The cover boards and end papers have been restored by a book binder, including a new green paper spine, new spine label using the typeface and text from the front cover, and some minor repair to the edges of the end papers. The extremities of the cover, especially at the corners are worn down to the boards, otherwise the illustrations and titling are bright and crisp. Remnants of tape remain on the inch nearest the spine, on the front and back covers. This was amateurishly used to hold the book together prior to our professional repair. The interior pages are clean and unmarked, with slight age toning along margins, that does not impinge on text or illustrations. Tiny inked inscriiption on verso of front free end paper: "To Marian, from Shoe, Jany. 1, 1906" with 1/2 inch square label of prior owner at top of front paste down. Binding is square and solid. Un-paginated, but 96 pages. This is one of Denslow's finest illustrated books. A very scarce book in very good condition since most of this edition has been lost to time and careless reading by very young children. A valuable addition to a collector's library. World Catalog, OCLC Number: 2712170 *** Please note, due to the size of this volume, expect additional shipping charges for delivery outside the continental United States. Inquire as to exact cost.

Original 3/4 medium blue cloth on boards, backed in dark blue cloth. White title labels cover and spine. Contains original "lalch" misspelling for "latch" in Cross-Patch poem. Top edges gilt. Turning through this book page-for-page I found no faults. Aside from the absence of a slipcase, it is as nearly fine as any 1928 book could be. There is only a hint of wear to the headband and lower corners of the cover, and there are 2-3 faint finger smudges to the cover. From endpapers to endpapers, it is a joy ! Unpaginated. From free endpaper to free endpaper, 79 leaves. Racial slur in "Ten Little N.," and "The Old Woman Who Lived in a Shoe" is seen spanking one of the children. Signed by Author(s).
