A child's garden of verses by Robert Louis Stevenson( Book )

97 editions published between 1895 and 2014 in English and German and held by 930 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Perhaps one of the most popular of Stevenson's works, A child's garden of verses, first published in 1885, is regarded universally as an outstanding example of the greatest recollections of childhood in verse. Featuring the superb illustrations of Charles Robinson, and including the original advertisements from the 1886 edition, this volume has a nostalgic feel which complements Stevenson's evocative verses with elegance and flair. Dedicated to Stevenson's nanny, Alison Cunningham, 'from her boy', this childhood classic features favourites from The Land of Nod to the immortalisation of Leerie, The Lamplighter. Altogether, this beautiful edition is a fitting tribute to a wonderful writer and one which will continue to appeal to lovers of literature, young and old
