This is an auction for LAVENDER'S BLUE: A BOOK OF NURSERY RHYMES, compiled by Kathleen Lines.

Illustrated by Harold Jones.

"The nursery rhyme book to outlast all others."
- Nursery World, 1954

Amazon.com reviews:

"Originally published in 1954, Lavender's Blue was received with immediate acclaim, and was chosen as a runner-up for the prestigious Hans Christian Andersen Medal. Beautifully designed and illustrated by the influential artist Harold Jones, the book never went out of print, and has been enjoyed by generations of children. This facsimile edition has been lovingly produced to recreate the look and feel of the first printing of this much-loved book. The most definitive collection of nursery rhymes and songs published, it will delight every child in your life, including you."

"FIVE STARS!! This collection of nursery rhymes was first published in and has not been out of print since. There are reasons for this. First, it is one of the most comprehensive collections of children's poems to date. Secondly, the author has pretty well stuck to the original (if, in the case of these old stories, "original" can be defined and identified) and recorded them as such. Thirdly, and just as important as the words found in the text, are the illustrations by Harold Jones...they simply do not get much better than this. A good nursery rhyme book needs; almost demands, good illustrations and we certainly get them here."
