Oh the wonderful Mother Goose here glorified by illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright. This collection of Mother Goose stories and nursery rhymes were reprinted by Barnes and Noble in 1992. This is not the first printing. There were numerous printings from this edition. isbn 0-88029-771-9

Mother Goose has survived centuries. There are references to Mother Goose stories as far back as 1650 in France. However in North America, the first Mother Goose was said to be the Boston wife of Isaac Goose. He had 2 wives. The most probably argument for authenticity is Charles Perrault who in 1695 published a fairy tales in his son's name called, Tales of My Mother Goose.

The book has table of contents in the front and is 122 large size pages. Condition is near fine. Does not appear to have been read and definitely not handled by a child. It has loads of full page illustrations by Blanche Fisher Wright. Wright illustrated the original Mother Goose anthology published in 1913 by Rand McNally. The cover is the same illustration used on that volume.

The book is hard cover with glossy picturial cover of a witchy looking woman riding a goose and carrying a baby in a basket. A real asset to any child's library. This is the illustration for the only Mother Goose rhyme that features Ma Goose as a character.
