With photo-etched illustrations by Mrs E.M. Boyd, Mr R. Andre, and the Author. Small 4to. 64pp, b&w frontis and illustrated throughout (4 by LAM), decorated endpapers. Original cloth-backed papered boards, decorated with waratah motif (colour) on the upper, singing frog on the lower. The head and tail of spine a little rubbed, the corners are a more affected, with the loss of the paper covering and some loss of the board at the lower front and upper rear corners (the latter quite slight). Internally in very good condition and beautifully clean (as are the covers). The slight damage to the corners aside, a nice copy in very good condition. ***The verses first appeared in the author's 'Grandmamma's Verse Book for Young Australia' (1878, unillustrated).
