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: London: William Heinemann, 1913., 1913. Hey! Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. Mother Goose. The Old Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1913].Edition de Luxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies (of which this is number 31), signed by the artist. Large quarto (11 3/8 x 9 inches; 290 x 228 mm.). xi, [1, blank], 159, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and eighty-five drawings in black and white (one mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guard).Original white buckram pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Minimal darkening to spine otherwise a near fine copy. "So far as titles go we move into a different key with Mother Goose, a book constructed in 1913 from a series of plates and line drawings which had appeared and would appear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. These poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings. Among the most noticeable of pictures in this book are 'Hark! Hark! the dogs do bark!" which has Rackham delighting in rags and tatters a deal more colourful than might be expected in our own age, and the altogether curious colour plate 'Old Mother Goose', remarkable for its composition, in which the black forests and borders merge to form an underlying pictorial structure reminiscent of Nolde or Munch, the colour also being virtually expressionist in feeling. This plate is an aberration, so far as the rest of the book is concerned, for within this we have the usual Rackham motley of lovely women, Rackham-faced gnomes, and all the images we might expect of the title. Quite appropriately Rackham illustrates 'As I was going to St Ives' with his own portrait, in a situation which is almost akin to a schizophrenic's dream, with the dance of seven witches, and the multiples of seven cats and kittens." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp.131-132).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 40-41. Riall, p. 115. I. Bookseller Inventory # 03547

Item Description: Munroe and Francis, 1843. An early printing in green morocco with gilt rule to the perimeter of the boards, rebacked with most of the morocco spine laid down, though part of the titling is lost. As Bleiler notes in his bibliography in the Dover edition of Mother Goose's Melodies [Dover Publications, 1970] "the various Munroe and Francis Mother Goose books have been unexpectedly complicated in their printing history . each new copy examined adds further confusion" [p. 99]. A study of the complex bibliography places this copy in the Second Family of Munroe & Francis printings. ~~Bleiler notes that the chain of editions can be traced through type as well as in textual changes, and that in the "Dover Edition", the dot is missing "on the second 'sing' in 'Sing, Sing' " on page 11, indicating that the type is worn. This copy has the dot present, indicating perhaps that it is an earlier printing. The illustrations in this copy are mostly signed correctly.~~Several leaves were torn and have been repaired professionally. ~~An early example of the American Mother Goose, and a charming one. The provocative claim on the title page that the rhymes were found "in the same stone box as the Golden Plates of the Book of Mormon", and the uncommon verses "See Saw Margery Daw/ Sold her bed and lay upon straw, / Was she not a dirty slut, / To sell her bed and lay in the dirt?", along with other odd usages and delightful woodcuts, make this edition a delight.~.

Item Description: Serigrafia, Limited, 1990. Hardcover. Book Condition: Fine. This is a complete collection, as issued, of six fine serigraph prints, one being the title print, and each of the other five illustrating a different Mother Goose rhyme. Each print is in its original glassine folder with a title label, and all are laid into the original cloth-backed folding clamshell box. Also laid in is a single sheet of letterpress text giving details on the careers of each of the artists. The sheets are large, 27 by 20.75 inches, and the box measures 28.5 by 22 inches. Each of the serigraphs is numbered and pencil signed by the artist. The illustrators who have provided pieces for this extraordinary collection are: Maurice Sendak, (title illustration), Chris Van Allsburg, Barry Moser, Seymour Chwast, Daniel Pelavin and Guy Billout. This is the most ambitious production from the fine art publishers Serigrafia. There were only 300 copies done, with 100 being retained for the use of the illustrators, 100 for Serigrafia, and 100 were donated to raise funds for The Children's Health Fund, founded in 1988 by Paul Simon to provide health care to disadvantaged children. This is a wonderful collection, with the prints, the letterpress and the box being uniformly fine, bright and clean. Signed by Illustrator(s). Bookseller Inventory # 1704

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: London: William Heinemann, 1913., 1913. Hey! Diddle Diddle, The Cat and the Fiddle [RACKHAM, Arthur, illustrator]. Mother Goose. The Old Nursery Rhymes. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. London: William Heinemann, [1913].Edition de Luxe. Limited to 1,130 numbered copies (of which this is number 880), signed by the artist. Large quarto (11 3/8 x 9 inches; 290 x 228 mm.). xi, [1, blank], 159, [1] pp. Thirteen color plates mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guards, and eighty-five drawings in black and white (one mounted on brown paper, with descriptive tissue guard).Original white buckram pictorially stamped and lettered in gilt on front cover and spine. Top edge gilt, others uncut. Slight darkening to spine, fore-edges of pp. 41-44 poorly opened. A very good copy.With the original Leicester Galleries Exhibition slip loosely laid-in."So far as titles go we move into a different key with Mother Goose, a book constructed in 1913 from a series of plates and line drawings which had appeared and would appear in St Nicholas between 1912 and 1914. These poems were chosen by Rackham, presumably in terms of themes and subjects he wished to illustrate: this would account for the consistently good quality of the many plates and of the numerous line drawings. Among the most noticeable of pictures in this book are 'Hark! Hark! the dogs do bark!" which has Rackham delighting in rags and tatters a deal more colourful than might be expected in our own age, and the altogether curious colour plate 'Old Mother Goose', remarkable for its composition, in which the black forests and borders merge to form an underlying pictorial structure reminiscent of Nolde or Munch, the colour also being virtually expressionist in feeling. This plate is an aberration, so far as the rest of the book is concerned, for within this we have the usual Rackham motley of lovely women, Rackham-faced gnomes, and all the images we might expect of the title. Quite appropriately Rackham illustrates 'As I was going to St Ives' with his own portrait, in a situation which is almost akin to a schizophrenic's dream, with the dance of seven witches, and the multiples of seven cats and kittens." (Fred Gettings. Arthur Rackham, pp.131-132).Latimore and Haskell, pp. 40-41. Riall, p. 115. I. Bookseller Inventory # 03892
