The Nurse's Rhyme Book, (Thomas Trueman)

The Nurse's Rhyme Book, (Thomas Trueman)

143 Rhymes. Taken together with the volume published in the previous year by Zeiger they comprise "all that is valuable in this particular department of juvenile literature." Most are one or two to a page with varied decorative borders and lovely small engravings. Some longer ballads and many unfamiliar rhymes and variants here. The later Smith editions are in World Cat, but this, presumably first, edition is not.
