London: George Routledge & Sons, no date . [Children's Illustrated] EARLY EDITION. Square octavo booklet (21 x 24cm), pp.24. Illustrated by Caldecott to every page, including several colour plates. Publisher's yellow illustrated paper covers, sewn. Rear adverts suggest the first year of publication 1884, but perhaps not the first issue, since the title 'Ride a-Cock Horse to Banbury Cross' is featured. A little light spotting and thumbing throughout. Heavy wear and chipping to spine; covers nearly detached. A little light chipping to other edges. Good. A verse invocation to lusty maypole dancing, including a veiled suggestion to afford musicians better pay and conditions. Item #57782
