Lullabies and Nonsense

Illustrated by

Nicola Bayley

WALKER BOOKS/1987 - First Edition

Hardback/Approx Size 24  x 18.5 cm 

IBSN 0-7445-0784-7

Generations of children have been rocked to sleep to the rhythm of traditional lullabies and bedtime rhymes; and by contrast, while still wide awake they have delighted in nonsense rhymes about the oddest of people - from upside-down piano players to women who live in coal scuttles.

This book presents some of the best rythes from both worlds, illustrated by Nicola Bayley with exquisite wit, delicacy and charm.

CONDITION: I have to say I feel a little upset about this book as I damaged the front endpaper. There was some sticky residue from the remains of a label/sticker in the top corner, in trying to remove this I also managed to remove some of the surface pattern and colour.

There is a some surface marking/rubbing to the dustwrapper, the top and bottom edges have some creasing and turning, and inside there is some spotting/foxing - shelfwear and age. But it is nice and clean and bright with no fading and has not been clipped.

The boards of the book are Very Good. They have a few small bumps in places along the extreme top edge, and the two bottom corners have been lightly bumped at their tips - this has marked but not otherwise damaged the covering. It is Very clean and very bright with no fading.

Inside it has blue marbled endpapers (marked as described above, see pics 4 & 5).  The book is in an Excellent condition throughout with only normal but light signs of use. It is lovely and clean and bright, the stitched pages are tight and I can't see any tears.

It is charming little book which is beautifully illustrated throughout. 

I try and describe my books as honestly and as accurately as I can, but if you still have any questions please ask... I will always reply.
