Delightful Victorian children's book that has a wood engraving on each page accompanied by a four line verse. Subject matter is children and animals. Over 170 illustrations, each almost full page.

Plain endpapers. Frontispiece with tissue guard. 25x19 cm. 176pp plus 4 pages of publisher's book adverts. Corners and top/tail backstrip rubbed. Binding very bright and clean.
