About the Book

The classic childhood verses in the beloved 1913 edition …

For almost three centuries, the 'Mother Goose' nursery rhymes have been a cherished and near universal part of childhood in the English speaking world. Many eminent artists have illustrated the beloved lyrics, but none more eminent than Arthur Rackham.

The defining figure of the 'Golden Age' of book illustration, Rackham has deeply influenced how modern readers and artists envision fantasy worlds. Published in 1913, when publishers were competing to produce the most gorgeous deluxe illustrated children's 'gift' books, Rackham's Mother Goose -The Old Nursery Rhymes is an illustrated classic that captures Rackham at the height of his powers.

Now, Easton Press is proud to present a gorgeous recreation of that deluxe 1913 illustrated book: MOTHER GOOSE - The Old Nursery Rhymes, an exclusive leather-bound Deluxe Limited Edition of 600 hand-numbered copies.

The work of a legendary illustrator as it was meant to be seen.


For Rackham, MOTHER GOOSE - The Old Nursery Rhymes was a labor of love. He selected the book's rhymes himself, choosing the ones he had most cherished when he was a small child and which most inspired him as an artist. And he illustrated the verses with the dazzling ink drawings, innovative watercolors, and unmatched imagination that make him among the most revered of illustrators.

All the classic Mother Goose rhymes are here, including “Jack and Jill,” “The Cat and the Fiddle,” “Humpty Dumpty,” “Ladybird, Ladybird,” and “As I Was Going to St Ives,” which Rackham illustrates with a picture of himself overwhelmed by the rhyme's multiplying wives, sack, cats, and kittens.

Countless millions have been thrilled and inspired by Arthur Rackham's art, but few have seen his work in the superior format he demanded for the first editions of his books. A magnificent reproduction of the 1913 first edition, the Deluxe Limited Edition MOTHER GOOSE - The Old Nursery Rhymes presents Rackham's 14 watercolors and 80+ black & white drawings exactly as the famously uncompromising artist originally intended.
