A Third Ladybird Book of Nursery Rhymes, 1967


A Third Ladybird Book of Nursery Rhymes, 1967.  This book, illustrated by Frank Hampson, was the third and last book in the set of  Nursery Rhymes books published in the 1960s.   It includes the rhymes Mary Had a Little  Lamb, Doctor Foster and the very scary Goosey, Goosey Gander.

The rhymes are traditional so these books are all about Frank Hampson’s wild, pretty disconcerting images.  The books appeal and alarm in equal measure – with odd perspectives, bright colours and odd juxta-positioning of the every-day and fantasy.

This copy:

Laminated boards. It’s hard to find any of these 3 Nursery Rhyme books in good condition – they were usually read to bits or given to the youngest of children.  Bearing that in mind, this one is in reasonable condition.  The pages have been well turned buy are generally clean.  Dents and rubs to the boards – more than you’d think from the photo – and a name sticker on the front endpapers.  It dates to the 1980s.
