The Comic Adventures of Old Mother Hubbard and her Dog

£150.00

Product description

An old child’s chap book. Fourteen brightly coloured illustrations and a frontispiece of Mother Hubbard. The pictures are printed on opposing pages with the appropriate verse printed beneath. The paper is linen backed and each pair is followed by two blank linen sheets. The front cover is severely worn with the lower third of the paper absent but the title, subtitle and the upper part of a dog on its hind legs remains. The subtitle reads “ In which are shown the wonderful powers that good old lady possesses in the education of her favourite animal”. The rear cover shows advertisements for other publications of The New Illustrated Series, The Durable Series and the Favourite Library. The spine cover has been completely eroded.

There is some fraying of the leading edge of the front cover and dog-earing of the corners. The paper part of the various pages is a little grubby but the linen backing remarkably clean.

For all its evident faults this is a remarkable survival of a very durable little children’s book of the eighteenth century with vibrant coloured illustrations.
