Six & Twenty Boys & Girls

£50.00

Product description

This rare children's book features full colour illustrations by John Hassall accompanying verses by Clifton Bingham, published by Blackie & Son in ca 1902. 24 (sic) verses about boys and girls: some good, some bad, some careless, some sad; each with a lively coloured full page illustration by the well-known artist John Hassall.

John Hassall (1868 – 1948) was an English illustrator, best known for his advertisements and poster designs. Clifton Bingham (1859 - 1913) was the author of numerous verses for children's picture books in the late Victorian and Edwardian period, and was better known as the writer of the lyrics of many popular sentimental songs.

The volume is complete and in good used condition overall, commensurate with age, but with several defects. The pasted-on illustrated cover is worn and with light pencil marks, the boards are worn with small losses, and the corners of the boards are badly worn. The flyleaf and title page have small tears and many pages are lightly soiled or lightly foxed. There is an ink inscription on the flyleaf dated 1909, and pencil words or scribbles on the front and end flyleaves and on the half-title.
