Book Condition: Very Good with no dust jacket


There is no date, no publisher (tho' numbered '993' at the foot of the rear cover). I would date this c. 1920 ? - but could be 1930, or even early 40s? - but the latter date at the latest. Full colour stapled pictorial card covers with the image of a charming little girl in an old fashioned Victorian costume with ringlets and a bonnet, and with her hands in a white muff. The rear cover is her back view. The whole book is shaped around her. Internally the shaped pages have the text and illustrations printed in red/blue/black based on white paper. The story is written in verse "Jemima Jane I wonder would you like to know, How little girls lived long ago..." ? And each page has a large central illustration. The cover and illustrations are in the style of Agnes Richardson - but as no illustrator is given, its probably a 'pirate' illustrator! A Charming period item. ; 8vo (small, slim)
