Mother Goose, or the Old Nursery Rhymes.

London: Frederick Warne and Co., no date [circa 1915]. [Children's Illustrated] VINTAGE EDITION with fine colour illustrations. Small octavo (17 x 11cm), pp.52. With fine coloured illustrations by the author, printed by Evans at Rose Place, London. Publisher's green cloth to spine, titled in brown, with glossy colour-illustrated paper-covered boards. Illustrated endpapers. Heavy pencil inscription to front pastedown, giving incorrect information about the printing date. Quite crisp and clean internally. Binding toned, with rubbing and bumping to board edges. Very good. First published in 1881, 'Mother Goose' is considered one of the high-points of Victorian illustrated book production and design. Frederick Warne purchased the rights to print a number of Routledge's most popular children's books in 1900, including this one, and in 1914 the premises of Edmund Evans printers moved from the long-established Racquet Court on Fleet Street to Rose Place, Globe Road.
