    Edition: First printing.

    New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, (1941.) dj. Hardcover first edition - The story of the Fleet family who lived in Pudding Lane in old Boston, above their father's print shop - besides young John and Prue, there was Grandmother Goose, always read with a nonsensical rhyme - based on Hunt's research of how Dame Goose of Boston inherited her rhymes from Mother Goose of old England, and how her book 'Mother Goose's Melodies' was published by Fleet in 1719. Illustrated with a two-page full-color title page and with many black and white drawings, some full page, by Clotilde Embree Funk. An uncommon title by this Newbery Honor award author, and especially so in this condition. Illustrated endpapers, top edge tinted orange. 161 pp.

    Condition: Very near fine in yellow cloth with black lettering in a near fine dustjacket with a wraparound illustration (slight toning to the spine of the dj, but overall a very attractive, tight and clean copy.)
