Dean's Child's Delights. Laughable Lines about Particular People.

(London): Dean & Son, (1860). Octavo. (6)ff. A collection of hand-colored engravings accompanied by rhyming stories about fictional people. Each story adopts a humorous tone, though some also bear moral lessons. Throughout its nineteenth-century lifespan, the publishing firm of Dean and Son specialized in innovative printing processes used in the creation of children's materials. Particular contributions included lithographic printing, pop-up elements, and other moveable features. This present volume's illustrations exemplify the same precision featured in other Dean publications. The hand-coloring is professionally done and features a color palette uncommonly broad for a children's book. Bound in paper wrappers, with previous owner's signature on front. Pages lightly foxed, blank pages show color bleed, minor wear and soiling to extremities, stitching coming loose, and wrappers split along part of spine. A very good copy of a book that would have been heavily used. Item #27705
