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.

Tall octavo. Original green cloth, gilt lettered spine, large coloured pictorial paper inset on front cover, decorative endpapers. Decorative title page, colour frontispiece, 5 colour plates (complete), letterpress printed in green within pictorial borders. Binding a little shaken. A very good copy.
