First edition, first impression. 14 nursery rhymes, including "Old King Cole", "How Many Miles to Babylon?" and "Doctor Foster Went to Glo'ster", each accompanied by a full-page illustration. This was the second book Peake illustrated and its success led to Chatto & Windus commissioning Peake to illustrate their edition of Lewis Carroll's The Hunting of the Snark (1941).
