De La Mare (Walter)
Title: Peacock Pie. A Book of Rhymes.
Seller ID: 53666
London: Constable, 1913. First edition. Blue cloth, spine and front cover ruled, designed and lettered in gilt. Modest shelf wear to the edges and hinges, an attractive bookplate on the inner front cover, a very good copy. The bookplate, the design of which includes a pair of peacocks, is that of Godfrey Elton, the First Baron Elton (we presume). A significant book, referred to by The Times as "surely one of the great children’s books of the century."
