About This Item

Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Co, 1912. First edition of the author's charming collection of four garden stories. Octavo, original publisher's cloth decorated in gilt, pictorial endpapers, illustrated with 8 tissue-guarded illustrations in color by Charles Robinson. In good condition. Prolific British book illustrator Charles Robinson illustrated many fairy tales, children's books and books written by Walter Copeland Jerrold and himself throughout his career. He was also an active painter, especially in later life, and was elected to the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours in 1932. The first full book he illustrated was Robert Louis Stevenson's A Child's Garden of Verses (1895) which includes over 100 pen and ink drawings. It was extremely popular, going through many reprints, and generated numerous commissions.
