Description A rare group of eight Nursery Picture Sheets mounted on boards, published by William Darton Jun., between 1811 and 1813; each bearing hand-coloured engravings with verses above and below each image. MY SON. By Richard Gregory. 1812. MY MOTHER [Ann Gilbert (Taylor)], 1811. MY DAUGHTER. By Richard Gregory. 1812. MY SISTER. By Mary Belson. 1812. MY BROTHER. By Mary Belson. 1812. MY FATHER. By Mary Belson. 1812. MY GRANDMOTHER. By Mr [William] Upton. 1813. MY GRANDFATHER. By Mr [William] Upton. 1813. The picture sheets are dust-soiled, browned, and quite worn at corners and edges, with occasional small loss of surface. However these sheets, designed to be hung in the nursery, are extremely rare. We have only ever handled two individual sheets. All of these titles were also published as books; some as dissections [jigsaws].
