London: Routledge, c.1870. Half morocco, 9 inches tall. A handsome binding with gilt raised bands, titles, ornate gilt panels and gilt top edge. An armorial bookplate. This volume contains 8 of Caldecott's 'Shilling Toy Books', all with wonderful full page colour plates. There is some foxing, and minor stains and tears, some of which have been repaired crudely with tape. A lovely collection of these beautifully illustrated books in a fine binding.
