3 Opie, Iona and Opie, Peter, editors. I SAW ESAU: THE SCHOOLCHILD'S POCKET BOOK.
Cambridge, Massachusetts Candlewick Press 1992 1564020460 / 9781564020468 First American Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good Maurice Sendak. 
160 pp, 7 1/2" H. " 'Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me.' That's what children chant when they are being teased; it's what their parents chanted, and their grandparents and great grandparents before them. Collected in this invaluable book are the wit and wisdom of generations of schoolchildren - more than one hundred and seventy rhymes ranging from insults and riddles to tongue twisters, jeers, and jump-rope rhymes. With Iona Opie's introduction and detailed notes and Maurice Sendak's remarkable pictures - vignettes, sequences, and full-page paintings both wickedly funny and comically sad - this book offers knowledge and entertainment to all who open it. Like a collection of Mother Goose nursery rhymes or Grimm's fairy tales, (it) deserves a place among the classic texts of childhood." Slight bump at bottom of rear hinge. Dust jacket has minor edge wear/wrinkling, light wrinkling at top of front flap-fold and flap. 
Price: 10.00 USD

London Granta 2004 1862077657 / 9781862077652 Second Edition Hard Cover Near Fine Very Good+ 
176 pp, 9" H. B&w illustrations. "Was little Jack Horner a squatter? 'Baa, baa, Black Sheep' a bleat about taxation? What did Jack and Jill do on that hill? Who was Mary? And why was she contrary? This witty and ingenious book delves into the hidden meanings of the most innocuous-sounding nursery rhymes, revealing a seething subtext of sexual innuendo, religious hatred and political subversion. (It) provides a fascinating history lesson, teases out some alarming Freudian interpretations, and makes entertaining connections to contemporary political and popular culture." A few very tiny specks of faint glue residue on rear board. Dust jacket has 2' crease at bottom of rear hinge, very minor edge wear. 
Price: 15.00 USD
