About this Item

"This is not Who killed Cock Robin, but a poem on that story," Dr. R explains. Present is an excellent reprinting of the first American edition of 1811, taken from the first English edition (London: J. Harris, 1808). As there, the plates are well-done metal engravings; as there, the first and last plates are pastedowns and the plates are browned. According to the cataloguers at the American Antiquarian Society, the illustrations may well be by William Charles (1776?1820), a caricaturist, engraver, and publisher of children's books. Square 12mo. 16 pp., 8 plts. Rosenbach, Children, 616; Shoemaker 5013. Original pale salmon-colored paper over light paste boards. Interior uniformly browned as is typical and with some off-setting from the plates. Bookseller Inventory # 31500
