Title:   The Old Man Who Lived in a Wood

Binding:   Hardcover

Book Condition:   Good +

Edition:   First edition

Publisher:   London George Allen 1902

Illustrator:   T[homas] Butler-Stoney

Seller ID:   000949

Contains 10 full page coloured wood engraving illustrations with black and white wood engravings decorating all of the other pages. The colours are delicate and the artistry is humourous and engaging. Butler-Stoney did not illustrate more than a handful of book titles and that is regrettable as his work is very appealing. This is a reasonably hard to find title. The illustrations are set to the verse that is about a old man who challenges the work that his wife must do around the house believing that he can do in one day what she takes three days to do. A brave man indeed.... so they swap roles and I'm sure you can guess what happens. This rhyme is purported to come from an early 'Mother Goose' anthology and there is no author attributed in this book. Unpaginated, 32 pp. Personal inscription on ffep [1944]. Tan cloth backstrip with paper covered illustrated boards. 21 x 27 cm. Corners / edges worn; backstrip bumped. Front and rear hinges cracked; contents fresh and complete.
