The Rhymes of Mother Goose

Pictures by Edward C. McCandlish

Here is another fairly uncommon title published in 1928 - 1929.

This book measures 10" x 7 13/16" and has 51 unnumbered pages. This book was bound in paper over boards with a full illustrated cover and yellow cloth spine and printed on Roycroft handmade watermarked paper. This book is believed to be the 1928 - 1929 edition although McKenna calls for a green cloth spine. Also it is printed on Roycroft watermarked paper while the 1928-29 edition is usually noted to be on a cheaper stock. It has the primarily green tints associated with the 1928-29 variant and is 1/4' shorter than the 1918 edition as called for. Also it has the additional verses and illustrations called for in the later edition. Once again, if there is anything I have learned, it is that the Roycroft book variants are virtually unlimited. This book is undated.
