Here is a delightful collection of nearly one hundred nursery rhymes, some of them taken from her books, and some which were never intended to be published but which were dropped for reason of space, or because the book itself was never completed. Verses from the privately-printed edition of The Tailor of Gloucester and rhymes for the early 1905 edition of Appley Dapplys Nursery Rhymes which was never finished rub shoulders with better-known favourites from the 1917 edition of Appley Dapplys Nursery Rhymes, Cecily Parsleys Nursery Rhymes, The Tale of Mrs Tiggy-Winkle, The Tale of Timmy Tiptoes and The Fairy Caravan, together with rhymes from The Tale of Squirrel Nutkin. Some of the rhymes are traditional, quoted from Haliwell if Beatrix Potters reference was too scanty- some are Beatrix Potters special adaptations- others are Beatrix Potter originals.Charming illustrations from Beatrix Potters work perfectly complement the rhymes, and make the book an ideal gift for any child. A special feature of this edition are the fresh reproductions (from new transparencies) of nearly all of the original paintings included in the book.
