An exceptionally clean and near fine copy."?By Christmas, Ruskin had recovered and was ready to advise her. Although he was still depressed by his uncontrollable health?his depression was somewhat relieved by Kate's latest books. which rekindled his interest in her ability to depict children and reminded him of his departed beloved [little Rose La Touche]. Mother Goose had a title-page drawing of a baby lying in a basket of roses. A Day in a Child's Life was even more evocative, with its rose wreath half-title page; a blonde girl lying in bed, so reminiscent of a child Rose on her sick bed; and young girls in white frocks dancing over a hillside to 'A Romp' - so like his Winnington Hall frolics" (Engen p.81).Schuster & Engen 66.
