Editorial Reviews

About the Author

Walter Jerrold (1865-1929) was born in Liverpool but spent most of his life in London, where he followed a literary career. Starting work as a clerk in a newspaper counting-house, he went on to become deputy editor of The Observer. He edited many classic texts for the newly founded Everyman's Library, he wrote biographies, he produced stories for children under the name of Walter Copeland. In 1895 he married Clara Armstrong and his five daughters were obviously a ready audience and true inspiration for his bumper collection of nursery rhymes. While explaining that this was based on earlier collections made by John Newbery, Joseph Ritson, and James Orchard Halliwell, he admitted that 'Tradition in the nursery has acted as a severe editor . . .'

Charles Robinson (1870-1937) was apprenticed to a lithographer in London while also attending art school. In 1892 he was commissioned to illustrate R. L. Stevenson’s A Child’s Garden of Verses for The Bodley Head. The book’s success established him as a successful artist and he went on to illustrate more than a hundred books.

7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By quote The Raven...... on April 27, 2011
Format: Hardcover
On the copyright page it states *"first published 1903....as THE BIG BOOK OF NURSERY RHYMES." THIS should give you an idea of HOW CLASSIC this little known gem of a book is! This edition has all black & white illustrations, however this DOES NOT detract from the charm of the book at all. I counted over 230 Rhymes and Poems,
with 320 numbered pages.You will find everything from the well known "Simple Simon"
to the lesser known "The Fox and The Goose". I collect "Mother Goose" books and this one is a beautiful example in it's simplicity. The children WILL love it, as well as anyone looking to add a "plum" to their collection. All around a winner!
(*This edition is 1993)
