Author Mother Goose

Author Details The figure of Mother Goose is an imaginary author of a collection of fairy tales and nursery rhymes[1] which are often published as Mother Goose Rhymes. As a character, she appears in one "nursery rhyme".[2] A Christmas pantomime called Mother Goose is often performed in the United Kingdom. The so-called "Mother Goose" rhymes and stories have formed the basis for many classic British pantomimes. Mother Goose is generally depicted in literature and book illustration as an elderly country woman in a tall hat and shawl, a costume identical to the peasant costume worn in Wales in the early 20th century, but is sometimes depicted as a goose (usually wearing a bonnet).





Publisher E.P. Dutton & Co.

Publisher Details E. P. Dutton was an American book publishing company founded as a book retailer in Boston, Massachusetts in 1852[1] by Edward Payson Dutton.

Summary Poor

Assessor Ben Locke

Notes Heavy edgewear on all sides of hardcover. The spine is very loose, and the pages are barely connected. Lots of scribbling and doodling on most of the pages.
