[1914] Contains 12 strongly coloured plates and black and white wood-cuts on the majority of the text pages. The book starts with the telling of the tinker, tailor nursery rhyme and then each of the subsequent chapters tells a story about one of the professions named in the rhyme. The profuse illustrations are really Wain at his best and it is good to have so many colour plates in one volume. Cloth backed brown boards, there are small black and white vignettes of the cats 'professions' to the upper board, together with a colour illustration paste down. Black lettering to the backstrip. Illustrated front and rear end papers. 136 pp plus 4 pages of adverts for other Tuck books [the last being Mabel Lucie Attwell's Alice in Wonderland, published in 1910]. Corners worn; top/tail of backstrip bumped. The binding has been re-set, retaining all original papers etc. Internally there is the occasional finger mark. The outer edge of the white border of two plates is quite grubby, one with two short closed tears, protected on the reverse with archival tape, and one with creases and pale blue pencil marks on the reverse. 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall.
