Unpaginated, oblong (9 1/4" H x 11 3/8" D). Colourful lithographic illustrations. "The verses in this book have been chosen from nursery rhymes and familiar animal poems of many countries (Mexico, Germany, France, Hungary, Italy, China, England, Russia, Spain, Czechoslovakia, Latvia & Japan). The authors have long since been forgotten, but the verses have lived because they are warm and lively and appeal to the imaginations of children. The illustrations, printed in seven colors, were done in a lithographic technique on film by two German artists. In each picture they capture the gaity and charm of the poem they have selected.
