Offering a very RARE and charming 1877 1st printing of 1st Edition book 'Under the Window;Pictures & Rhymes for Children by Kate Greenaway'. Illustrated by one of my favorite children's illustrators, Kate Greenaway. Engraved and Printed by Edmund Evans. Published by George Routledge and Sons, London. The first of the two books that Greenaway both wrote and illustrated, and the book that touched off the Greenaway vogue in book illustration.

This book has the following characteristics which are ONLY seen in the 1st printing:
*Blue green end papers
* "End of Contents" on p. 14
* complex illustrations present on pp. 21,35, and 63. These were omitted in later states.

This is from my personal collection of Kate Greenaway books I purchased many years ago from the estate of an elderly woman who was an avid Kate Greenaway collector. I am selling some of the collection which includes many 1st editions. Most of the books still have the purchase price paid by the former owner and a handwritten notecard she wrote regarding the book.

This book has 1st edition and $150 written in pencil (this was the price well over 30 years ago)! In very nice condition with wear to hardcover front and back. Inside has some handwriting in pencil including an inscription 'Christmas 1879'. This book has been republished but this is an antique 1st edition copy. Measures 7.5" x 9.5".
