The Children's Musical Cinderella Words by William Routledge Music by Louis N. Parker. Walter Crane, Illustrator.

The Children's Musical Cinderella Words by William Routledge Music by Louis N. Parker

London: George Routledge & Sons, 1879. First edition. Stiff Wraps. 30 pages. 25 x 18.4 cm. Seven color plates, including one double-page engraved on wood by Edmund Evans. Scarce expanded version of the famous sixpenny toy book. Perhaps intended as the first in a series of new versions of the famous Walter Crane Toy Books, this juvenile play contained lyrics by Routledge and music by Parker. It sold for a shilling; and apparently did not sell well, as no other title was issued in this format. Crane having cut his ties with the sixpenny series, this book was likely issued without his permission or knowledge. Crisp, bright copy. Orig. illustrated stiff wraps. Near fine. Item #20751

Price: $795.00
