What a wonderful antique book. The April Baby's Book of Tunes with The Story Of How They Came To Be Written, by the author of "Elizabeth and Her German Garden", illustrated by KATE GREENAWAY. Copyright 1900,by The MacMillian Company, London, this is a 1901 reprint of the first edition. The hardcover book is 7" X 7" and in good antique condition for it's age. There are suppose to be 16 colour illustrations but the one to face page 7 has come away from the binding, but is still with the book. Two illustrations are missing from the book--The Strains of 'Polly Flinders' page 25, and The Tea Party page 50. The 14 illustrations that are present all have blank back sides and could be removed for framing. The pages are not as white as my pictures show, they are more of a light, light cream and appear that they were intended to be that color. I just viewed my pictures again and the color of the page that shows the listing of illustration is more the color of the pages. The wonderful features in all of the illustrations or in perfect color hues. I hope this makes sense, descriptive writing is not one of my strong points. There are no major flaws with the book other than the one loose and two missing pages. Still a true treasure as I think my pictures will show.
