This listing is for a rare copy of The Real Mother Goose, illustrated by Blanche Fisher Wright and published by the Rand McNally Company of Chicago, copyright 1916. This is a gorgeously illustrated book, with a full page color illustration every other page. Multiple rhymes are on each facing page. Many are classics still popular today, others will be discovered for the first time when you read it! This is a large hardcover volume, measuring 12" x 10". Although the pages are not numbered, there are 300 rhymes listed and I estimate well over 100 pages in this volume.

The book is in fair condition, please see photos for more details. The binding is cracked, and there is a loose page (containing the rhyme list) but there are no missing pages and the pages themselves are in good shape. Could easily be restored by a professional, I am selling as-is. Some wear to corners consistent with age, and the inside first page is marked in pencil "Elizabeth from (??) & Martha, Xmas '19" in pencil, further validating this is a 100+ year old treasure.

This book came from an estate auction in Western Pennsylvania. We acquired a number of a books of this era, view them all in our Vintage Books & Other Treasures section!
