Hard Cover. Very Good/No Dustjacket. Author's Edition. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. 108 pages, plus a page of ads for other books by the publisher. Notable not only for the poems, but for the lovely gilt artwork on the front board, and especially for the scarce Kate Greenaway drawing on the title page. The drawing shows two typical Greenaway female babies reclining beneath a tree. Very nice example of her work.The book is bound in sturdy cloth-covered boards, with gilt lettering and floral decorations on the front and gilt lettering on the spine. The top exterior page edges are gilt. The book has no major flaws and is structurally extremely sound. The exterior is lightly hand-soiled and the spine is darkened somewhat as a result of this and from exposure, but the front still shows off the gilt decorations nicely. The book stands perfectly straight, and is exceedingly firm and tight in its binding, with no pages loose, missing, torn or folded. The hinges are still very sound and undamaged, the text-block is still held firmly in place. The board corners have not been bumped. There is virtually no wear to the cloth exterior to speak of, no tears, no snags, no fraying, no wear-throughs. The pages are faintly age-toned, but are clean, clear, and unsmudged, and all text is still sharp, bright and very legible. This is a small bit of faint foxing to the title page, but none has affected the Greenaway drawing to any major, noticeable degree. The title page is separated from the frontis of Mr. Locker by a tissue guard. There is no writing, underlining, highlighting or markings of any kind in the book. An attractive, solid copy.
