Rhymes for Kindly Children

With beautiful vivid illustrations, this book is a sight to behold. Even the name "Rhymes for Kindly Children" speaks of a time long gone. People just don't talk like that anymore. This book is in very good shape still, but as you can see in the photos, some of the pages are loosening from the spine. None have yet to come fully loose, but they have definitely worn down and are weak in places. Also, the pages have yellowed slightly with age. However, seeing as this book is approaching 100 years old, nothing is beyond expectation in normal wear.
