About This Item

Melbourne: Allan & Co, 1937. First Thus. With the success of the first three song books written and composed by Annie Rentoul and Georgette Peterson and illustrated by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite, other editions were inevitable. This collection (the "Imperial Edition, No. 394"), brings together seventeen of the best-loved tunes including the favourites "A Little Aboriginee", "Baby Bear" and "Corroboree", in a smaller format for ease of use by children. Marcie Muir says these tunes, 'made a lasting contribution to the life of Australian children. For many years, children were familiar with these songs, whether from learning them when being taught to play the piano, from singing them at kindergarten, or from familiarity with the books and drawings'. This ephemeral edition is quite scarce with a cover design by Ida Rentoul Outhwaite. Extraordinary piece of post-colonial Australian social history. Octavo, bound in original illustrated wrappers, some browning to the page edges, in very good condition.
