About This Item

New York, New York, U.S.A.: Frederick Wane & Co. Ltd., 1970. Reprint . Hardcover. Fair/Very Good+. Greenaway, Kate. Very old children's alphabet rhyme revived & newly decorated by famed children's illustrator, Kate Greenaway. There is no rhyme for the letter "I" (it's not missing--was never included, as "I" & "J" were not differentiated in early alphabets. Illustrations reprinted from the original woodblock designs engraved & first published in 1886. This edition is from Frederick Warne in the 1970s, going by ISBN; no date in book. It is an Ex-Lib copy, so condition is only Fair; usual marks & stamps in front matter only--nothing to exterior. The decorative paper-covered boards are illustrated with the same design as the DJ. They show heavy rubbing to extremities & some small holes. Interior is generally very clean, with mild but even tanning & signs of reading wear to fore edge. Binding is secure. NO writing/underlining/highlighting.The old library mylar has been carefully removed & replaced with a new archival version--the DJ underneath is VG+: beautiful, with just very mild rubbing & wrinkling to edges.
