Child's Play - Seventeen drawings by E.V.B., Boyle, Eleanor Vere (E.V.B.]
4 Boyle, Eleanor Vere (E.V.B.] Child's Play - Seventeen drawings by E.V.B.
London Addey & Co, Old Bond Street 1851 First Edition Cloth Good 
Seventeen pages, drawings with printed manuscript text, printed on one side of the page only, interleaved with blank pages, a little light foxing and age-toning, large slim 8vo, later blue cloth with gilt lettering and lining, very slightly worn. [The extremely rare true first edition. The text was taken by E.V.B from an old copy of Halliwell's Nursery Rhymes. Apparently published at Christmas 1851, but often attributed to 1852. It is reputedly the first book to have illustrations of nursery rhymes, but this seems a little unlikely ? The first title page has a large and heavy inscription - "To Sybil Sassoon from Louise Boyle", and in the same hand "The Hon Mrs Richard Boyle" is written beneath E.V.B. There is an accompanying letter from Louise Boyle, gifting it to Sybil Sassoon, and apologising for the fact that she has had to re-bind it.]
