Gorgeous and rare to find, this collectable Baby Book was published by Rahael Tuck & Sons in the late 1800's, from a private collection. Illustrated by Frances Brundage, famous for her depiction of beautiful children. Her art closely resembles Maud Humphrey and Ida Waugh. Brundage work published by Tuck, printed books and postcards, are avidly collected today.
This is the most beautiful baby book. Written by Ida Scott Taylor with poems by Tennyson and George MacDonald. There are four full color chromolithographs, and many monotone illustrations, each one a treasure. Gilt end papers, this book was used to write the story of little Edward Wagner born in 1902. Born, First Visitors, First little shoes, First short clothes, First outing, First words, First tooth and many more "firsts". Wear to cover at corners, slight aging inside as to be expected, the edges of the pages are in gilt. Absolutely beautiful, a gem to add to your collection or to gift to someone you love.
