Original white cloth-backed pictorial boards; pp. [iv], 5-48; with line illustrations to every page; an uncommonly attractive copy of a vulnerable book, externally with some overall dust-soiling, marking to boards, and rubbing to edges and corners, internally very clean and sound throughout, without inscription, and with a neat oval ink stamp "With the publishers' compliments" to the front free endpaper.
First edition, published by Edward Arnold rather than Duckworth and with the advertisement for The Bad Child's Book of Beasts, published by Alden & Co. on the verso of the title-page. A collection of nonsense rhymes with an animal theme including The Python; The Welsh Mutton; The Crocodile; The Vulture; The Llama and The Frozen Mammoth.
