Description 16 leaves, printed on one side only, each bearing an engraving with verse above and below. Original pictorial wrappers. 12.5 x 10.5 cm. Covers worn and rubbed; few small nicks to edges; else a very good copy of this nursery classic, being the sequel to The Death and Burial of Cock Robin. Darton first published this title in 1806. This copy is watermarked 1819, so it does not exactly match any of the examples Darton examined, but Darton H259 [2-4] are the nearest. Copies are rarely found with their original wrappers.
