EVERETT, Ethel (illustrator). Old Nursery Rhymes. London; T.C. & E.C. Jack Ltd. Circa 1940.

Royal 8vo. Original pictorial yellow boards boldly blocked in outlined colours, pictorial endpapers (different at front and rear), preserved in repeat dustwrapper; pp. [44], including endpapers; with half-page illustrations throughout in alternate colour and line; externally fine, internally equally fresh, with some offsetting to free endpapers, protected by a very good dustwrapper with overall dust-soiling and rubbing, chipping to spine ends and corners, and a couple of short closed edge tears (longest 15mm); seemingly scarce in any form.

Early edition; first published in 1927. This is the publisher's archival copy with a neat, and small, ink stamp 'Please Return' to title-page, a tiny onlaid paper label "Reviewed 1942" and a pencilled number. Only 3 copies listed on Copac (B.L.; Nat. Lib. of Scotland; Oxford).
