Antique Cock Robin Children's Book by Hurst and Company, New York, copyright 1902 with illustrations by Palmer Cox. Palmer Cox was the author of "The Brownies" (another wonderful children's book).

If you love antique children's books, you will adore this rare and unusual version of Cock Robin! There are two absolutely gorgeous color illustrations (see Pics 1 and 2) and numerous black and white illustrations throughout the book (See pics 3 and 5 for examples). The inside front and back have illustrated (in a soft red) children's poetry (see Pic. 4).

Due to its extreme age, the book's pages are fragile, but in really nice condition with only very minor and small tears at the bottom of a few of the pages. The cover is intact with signs of wear to the corners and some age spotting to the illustration as would be expected of a book of this age. (Please see closeups of pics 1 & 2.)

It is truly a beautiful and collectible antique children's book that would be wonderful in a display, in a child's room (perhaps framed), OR if you are a mixed media/altered art/collage artist, you will find many ways to use these gorgeous illustrations - just scan and use over and over again!

Measures 7 1/2" wide x 10" long.

PLEASE review all photos carefully, as they are part of the description. We do our very best to describe any imperfections or damage, but like all vintage items, some wear is expected - that's part of their charm and character.
