I adore old children's books and whilst rummaging through my vintage collection, I came across this old treasure that I had not looked at for a while. Needless to say I found myself flicking through the pages, drooling over the illustrations once more.....they are simply gorgeous.
This is a well thumbed nursery ryhme book with 48 exquisite coloured illustrations, all by Margaret Tarrant. I am guessing that this particular fourth edition was issued around c1920.
|Mary Had A Little Lamb|
|Mary,Mary, Quite Contrary.|
|Little Boy Blue|
Although this book is 90 years old, the vibrancy of the colour in the illustrations are still retained and just beautiful.
I am closed over this Easter bank holiday weekend but hope to begin listing on the website some more rather lovely vintage miniature goodies from Tuesday onwards.
Happy Easter To You All!
