"Under The Window Pictures and Rhymes for Children" was written and illustrated by Kate Greenaway. Published in London by Frederick Warne & Co, this is a 1940s edition. Though not dated, this was obtained from the original owner who received it as a gift in 1946.
This was Kate Greenaway's first book and is lovingly illustrated with Victorian dressed children. Each page contains a rhyme, some you may know and other that will be new to you. An example of one rhyme is:
Tommy was a silly boy; "I can fly," he said; He started off, but very soon, He tumbled on his head.
His little sister Pure was there, To see how he would do it; She knew that, after all his boast, Full dearly Tom would rue it!
