About This Item

London: Griffith & Farran, 1876. Kemp, W. (Maria Adelaide Marsh). Quarto. 21pp. Illustrations and text printed together anastatically. Kemp's elaborate calligraphy and illustrations imbue her rhymes with whimsy, making them more worthy of the category of fairy tale rather than nursery rhyme. Exceedingly rare. Bound in red cloth stamped in black and gold. Light soiling at edges, rubbing to corners, scattered light foxing, else near fine and sturdy.
