Title:   The Baby's Bouquet

Binding:   Hardcover

Book Condition:   Good +

Publisher:   London Frederick Warne & Co. [1890]

Illustrator:   Walter Crane

Seller ID:   0001218

There are 11 full page Walter Crane illustrations [incl frontis] and each of the remaining 56 pages is highly decorated in the Arts and Crafts style with Pre-Raphaelite and Japanese influences. The standard of decoration is much more sophisticated than other children's books of the time. The wood engraving was undertaken by Edmund Evans, who had a fruitful collaboration with Crane, and also with Kate Greenaway. This book is a companion to the Baby's Opera by Crane (please note that I also have a copy of this for sale). The text includes nursery songs from France, Germany, and England and was a tremendous success with several hundred thousand copies sold at the time. Tan cloth backstrip. Condition: corners worn; top/tail of backstrip bumped. Front and rear hinges are broken, but the binding itself is still relatively firm.
