Descrizione

‘Mother Goose – The Old Nursery Rhymes’ is a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes, penned by the legendary (and only some claim imaginary), ‘Mother Goose.’ They have inspired many folklorists and illustrators (including Charles Perrault, Arthur Rackham, Jessie Willcox-Smith and Jennie Harbour) – as well as countless generations of children and parents. In the foreword, Rackham states that he has ‘chosen those rhymes I knew and liked best in my own nursery days… altering and adding to our old friend Mother Goose’s original collection.’

The ‘Old Nursery Rhymes’ are accompanied by a series of dazzling colour illustrations by Arthur Rackham (1867-1939). One of the most celebrated painters of the British Golden Age of Illustration (which encompassed the years from 1850 until the start of the First World War), Rackham’s artistry is quite simply, unparalleled. Throughout his career, he developed a unique style, combining haunting humour with dream-like romance. Presented alongside the text, his illustrations further refine and elucidate the wonderful poetry of ‘Mother Goose Rhymes’.

Pook Press celebrates the great ‘Golden Age of llustration‘ in children’s literature – a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration. We publish rare and vintage Golden Age illustrated books, in high-quality colour editions, so that the masterful artwork and story-telling can continue to delight both young and old.

MOTHER GOOSE

OLD NURSERY RHYMES

NURSERY RHYMES

I’LL tell you a story

About Jack-a-Nory,—

And now my story’s begun:

I’ll tell you another

About Jack and his brother,—

And now my story’s done.

JACK SPRAT could eat no fat,

His wife could eat no lean:

And so, betwixt them both,

They lick’d the platter clean.

SEE, saw, Margery Daw,

Johnny shall have a new master;

He shall have but a penny a day,

Because he can’t work any faster.

NURSERY RHYMES

SEE, saw, Margery Daw

Sold her bed and lay upon straw.

Was not she a dirty slut,

To sell her bed and lie in the dirt!

PAT-A-CAKE, pat-a-cake, baker’s man!

Make me a cake as fast as you can:

Prick it and stick it, and mark it with B,

And put it in the oven for Baby and me.

ROCK-A-BYE, baby, thy cradle is green;

Father’s a nobleman, mother’s a queen;

And Betty’s a lady, and wears a gold ring;

And Johnny’s a drummer, and drums for the king.

MOTHER GOOSE

LITTLE BO-PEEP has lost her sheep,

And can’t tell where to find them;

Leave them alone, and they’ll come home,

And bring their tails behind them.

Little Bo-Peep fell fast asleep,

And dreamt she heard them bleating;

But when she awoke she found it a joke,

For they were still a-fleeting.

Then up she took her little crook,

Determined for to find them;

She found them indeed, but it made her heart bleed,

For they’d left their tails behind them.

Little Bo-peep

RIDE a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,

To see a fine lady upon a white horse;

With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,

She shall have music wherever she goes.

MOTHER GOOSE

BYE, baby bunting.

Daddy’s gone a hunting,

To get a little rabbit’s skin

To wrap the baby bunting in.

A GAME WITH THE FACE

HOW many days has my baby to play?

Saturday, Sunday, Monday,

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday,
