FIRST EDITION dated 1868 on title page, 4to, 270 x 230 mm, 10½ x 9 inches, red morocco grained cloth, blind stamped and gilt decorated to upper cover, ornate central gilt title panel, another for title on spine, all edges gilt, pages linen mounted. 24 very good colour plates printed by 'Kronheim and Dalziels' for 4 stories: Sing a Song o' Sixpence, The Robin's Christmas Eve, Robin Hood and his Merry Men (13 separate images on 6 plates) and The Sea Side (11 images on 6 plates). Old amateur repair to 5 mm (½") of cloth at head and tail of spine, spine edges and corners slightly worn, couple of small splits to upper hinge neatly glued, darkish stain to lower cover 70 x 90 mm, (3½" x 3"), front and rear inner paper hinges partly cracked, binding firm. Occasional pencil scribble to blanks, mostly erased, text pages slightly browned and occasionally quite foxed. Inscription dated 1869 on front free endpaper. A good plus tight copy. Although the plates of The Sea Side are in the autumnal colours typical of Kronheim the illustrations are delightful, showing children having fun with their families on holiday: donkey rides, going for a sail or a swim, listening to the Ethiopian Serenaders, watching fisher-folk. The Robin Hood item consists of a series of little episodes which include the weddings of Robin and Allan-a-Dale and ends with Robin's death. Mrs Laura Valentine was the general editor of Warne's publishing house and possibly wrote some of the verses (See Osborne I,84). MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE.

Library, 4to, 270 x 230 mm, 10½ x 9 inches, brown sand grained cloth, gilt, black, red and white illustration to upper cover from Cock Robin, gilt lettered and decorated spine, 24 pages of text. 24 very good guarded colour plates printed by Kronheim from original designs by H. Stannard, Mrs. Hawtrey etc. Contains Cock Robin's Courtship, Marriage, Death, and Burial (Stannard); World-Wide Fables; Alphabet of Fruits; and The Hare and the Tortoise. Slightly worn at head and tail of spine and corners, tiny chip to cloth at lower corner of upper cover, few very slight marks to cloth, covers bright, inner hinges partly cracked, binding firm, endpapers slightly creased, prelims slightly foxed. Occasional light margin soiling and spotting, especially to guards, some pale fingermarks, 95 mm (3¾") closed tear to 1 text page margin, expertly repaired, same margin slightly creased, few very short closed edge tears, maximum 10 mm (½"). A very good copy. World-Wide Fables contains 7 fables, 6 of which from Aesop, 23 very good images on 6 plates, with 4 scenes of some very handsomely dressed mice in The Town and Country Mouse. The Alphabet of Fruits has 23 images on its 6 colour plates, all very attractive scenes, mostly with children, each letter has a descriptive 4-line verse: 'A is for Apples, so rosy and round,/Which the children delight to pick up from the ground . C is for currants, which Dora, you see/is picking for Tarts, from the red currant tree L is the fragrant and pale-coloured Lime,/Growing ripe in the sun of a tropical clime. W for the Walnuts at Christmas we eat,/And make of the shells such a capital fleet.'. All the titles in this volume were issued singly but all are rare. Oppenheimer 547 is the Cock Robin item but lacking the wonderful double page coloured plate, Oppenheimer 50 is the Alphabet of Fruits. There is another completely different book published by Warne with the same title dated 1868 on the title page. MORE IMAGES ATTACHED TO THIS LISTING, ALL ZOOMABLE. FURTHER IMAGES ON REQUEST.
