About this Item

Complete With Magic Colored Pictures. No place: G. W. Carleton & Co., Publishers; Donaldson Brothers, Designers & Printers, 1879. Octavo, original pictorial blue cloth, stamped in gold and black. 94 of 96 (unnumbered) pages, lacking one leaf. Color lithographed title page. Recto of each leaf is a tinted lithograph with an extended flap about 1 / 3 of a page wide that is folded down onto the page, completing the picture. In the bottom margin is the beginning of a rhyme. When the flap is lifted, another complete picture is revealed along with the rest of the rhyme. The verso of each leaf contains a complete poem. Covers worn and soiled, gatherings are loose but intact, some small tears along folds without loss, indelible scribbling on one page of text, occasional small marginal stains. Otherwise, the illustrations, some in one color and others in two or three colors, are bright, and only one illustration is lacking, making this copy one of the most complete we have seen on the market. An unusual children's book for its day and and quite scarce today. Bookseller Inventory # 11260
