Here is a classic, illustrated edition of Robert Louis Stevenson's "A Child's Garden of Verses" -- one of the best loved poetry collections in the world. Lavishly illustrated with more than 100 pictures by the most distinguished children's book artists of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this edition of A Child's Garden of Verses contains all the poems that appeared in the original book, published over 100 years ago.
Complete with its dust jacket, this hard cover edition is in very good vintage condition. The endpapers have three gift inscriptions, seeming to be a cherished book for several children. The book is 121 pages long and has a "Short Biography" of Mr. Stevenson. This collectible book is in very good vintage condition. The dust jacket is in good condition with a tear along the cover's left edge (see photos) and some mild curling along the edges.. The inside pages, besides the inscription previously mentioned, are unmarked and the binding is tight. The book measures approximately 11 1/4 inches by 8 1/4 inches and will be shipped Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
This is a volume to be cherished for a lifetime: by parents and by grandparents who grew up with the poems and, most of all, by children who are being introduced to this extraordinary collection for the first time.
