Product description

Undated (circa 1910) published by S W Partridge & Co Ltd, edited by the editor of 'The Children's Friend'.

This is a scarce delightfully illustrated large format book of stories and poems for reading aloud to younger children. The illustrations are in colour and monochrome colours. The pages are not numbered.

Illustrators include: Harry B Neilson; H G C Marsh; Dora Westacott; Arthur J Elsley; and Louis Wain, together with a lovely illustrated cover. The end papers include some fascinating adverts of products for children.

There is a prize book plate attached at the the front of the book, 'Awarded to Jessie Westley for good work in the kindergarten, Pendennis College, Streatham'.

In fair to good condition only. With rubbing to the corners of the cover and a split to the inner edge of the end papers. There are light marks on some of the pages and a couple of the drawings have been coloured in. However the pages are complete and the binding is holding together.

Please note this item will be dispatched by courier, charged at the usual postage rate.
