FRYER, Jane Eayre.
The Mary Frances Garden Book
or Adventures Among the Garden People. With illustrations by William F. Zwirner.
First edition, first printing. A thoroughly delightful garden book for children, with all of the “cut outs” present and unused (copies are often found incomplete). There was a series of these books, in which the eponymous Mary Frances also tackled cooking, sewing, knitting, housekeeping, and first aid.
