London: Cassell, (no date). First edition (Lasner 24). Original quarter cloth, gilt, and plain red paper boards, all edges stained red, white endpapers, illustrated, 75 pp. Illustrated by Helen Allingham, the author's wife, and three others; four of the illustrations are in color, including one by Kate Greenaway, "The Bubble". The first issue was in April, 1887; this is a later issue or printing, the same as the first except: the paper boards not illustrated, and no ads bound in at the end. The edges of the boards rubbed, the spine cloth unworn. Offsetting to the front and back boards from its long-time placement on a shelf. All the inserted color plates are foxed, as are the leaves adjoining each. A Very Good copy.
Title: Rhymes for the Young Folk.
