Product description

The Fairy Picture Book
Verses by Clifton Bingham
Pen-and-ink illustrations by E Stuart Hardy
Ernest Nister, London, & E P Dutton & Co, New York; (nd).
Probably late 1800s/early 1900s. Ernest Nister (1841–1906) was a publisher and printer of moveable books for children.
Hardback; 265 x 280 mm; pictorial glazed boards with cloth spine; 10 unpaginated leaves. No dust jacket.
The book is in fair condition. The binding is generally sound though there is cracking along one of the gutters. The covers are a little grubby and scuffed with chipping and a little fraying. Tanning and a little foxing internally. The recto of the front free endpaper is annotated in blue ink: M. C. RAMSKILL. The book has 7 moveable, circular pictures not all of which are in working order, and one of which is almost detached. Some chips and closed tears.
Clifton Bingham (1859 - 1913), the author of numerous verses for children's picture books in the late Victorian and Edwardian period, was better known as the writer of the lyrics of many popular sentimental songs, the most famous of which was "Love's Old Sweet Song". He provided many verses for the lavishly printed picture books produced by the firms of Nister, Raphael Tuck, Blackie and Alf Cooke.
E Stuart Hardy (1865-1935) was a British illustrator and author. She was born in Bristol to an artistic family, both her father David Hardy and his wife Emily, being artists. Her elder brothers David (better known as Paul Hardy, 1862-1942) and Norman Heywood Hardy (1863-1914) also became artists.
