Babes and Blossoms - Illustrated by Charles Robinson

£50.00

Product description

Charming children's book with short verses by Walter Copeland and colour illustrations of flowers and children by Charles Robinson.

The book is undated but is believed to be an early issue of the work, published by Blackie in the first part of the twentieth century. The cover illustration appears to be that associated with the US edition rather than that shown by other sellers as the first Blackie edition.

Hardback book in good condition for its age. Illustrated front board, red cloth spine with gilt titling and flower design. The text and images are printed on one side of the page only, and then folded with the blank pages on the inside. The pages have not then been cut. The ends of spine and corners are bumped. there is shelf wear to the edges, and the boards and endpapers are somewhat discoloured. Foxing and marks to the edges of the text block. Internally the condition is very good, with the colours of the illustrations still vibrant.
