Mother Goose rhymes are a beloved heritage of all English speaking people, retold over and over by generations and loved by readers of all ages. This special edition contains more than 1000 rhymes from the earliest publications to the present. It is one of the most complete collections published. Copious notes point out the meaning of the rhymes and words but also explain the many political allusions, jokes, parodies, tricks, games, and other curiosities. Bibliographic history of the older rhymes is given in full.
In addition, the illustrations are one of the most special parts. Artists such as Randolph Caldecott, Arthur Rackham, Maxfield Parrish, Walter Crane and more. It is truly a delightful and beautiful volume.
