Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes is a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes, penned by the legendary (and only some claim imaginary), 'Mother Goose.' They have inspired many folklorists and illustrators (including Charles Perrault, Arthur Rackham, Jessie Willcox-Smith and Jennie Harbour) - as well as countless generations of children and parents. Greenaway's Mother Goose was originally published in 1881, to instant critical acclaim. Kate Greenaway (1846 - 1901), was a children's book illustrator and writer, and remains one of the most popular illustrators of all time. Edmund Evans produced her first book ('Under the Window') in 1879, which was an instant best-seller and cemented her pre-eminent position. Her charming children in quaint costumes and idyllic scenes captured the imagination of the contemporary public - and continue to delight over a century after their initial publication. The artwork is presented in conjunction with the 'Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes' - both aspects further refining and elucidating the other. Pook Press celebrates the great 'Golden Age of Illustration' in children's literature - a period of unparalleled excellence in book illustration from the 1880s to the 1930s. Our collection showcases classic fairy tales, children's stories, and the work of some of the most celebrated artists, illustrators and authors.
