    London: Routledge, Warne, and Routledge, [1862.]. [ii], 113 leaves printed on one side only. Original pictorial paper-covered boards, sometime re-backed in imitation of the original. A few leaves have some slight damage to the fore-edges where once loose; one leaf repaired; one leaf with juvenile scribble on blank verso; binding very worn to corners and edges, and both boards with old fold marks, now repaired. However, this third printing, the first with woodcut illustrations based on the earlier [1846] lithographs, and the first enlarged edition with 43 new rhymes and illustrations, is extremely rare; in our experience, much more so than the second edition of 1855. -
