Product description

An anthology of poetry for children chosen and annotated by Walter de la Mare. "In his introduction he says of the contents: 'There are many kinds of rhymes in this book - mere jingles, game-rhymes, nursery rhymes and poems. Some are old, some are new. Some are rather roughly made, they jog and stumble when they ought to dance; others among the most lovely and perfect things that have ever been made out of English words. But every one has its own kind of goodness, and gives its own kind of pleasure, and many of them I have loved since I was a child.' This delightful collection completely redesigned with decorations by Margery Gill and a Foreword by Leonard Clark, now enters its third impression."

Blue cloth boards with gilt lettering to spine. This book is in very good condition except for the dust jacket which has some small tears and a large piece missing from the back.
