1886 Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes Color Illustrated Children Poems Humpty Dumpty

“Humpty-Dumpty sat on a wall,

Humpty-Dumpty had a great fall;

All the king’s horses, and all the king’s men,

Cannot put Humpty-Dumpty together again.”

– “Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes”, Humpty-Dumpty

A rare illustrated edition of famous Mother Goose Nursery Rhymes. This book contains all the famous nursery rhymes including:

Peas Porridge Hot

Hey Diddle Diddle

Ba Ba Black Sheep

Dickery Dickery Dock

Fa, Fe, Fi, FO Fum

Hot Cross Buns

Humpty Dumpty

Jack and Jill

Jack be Nimble

Mary had a Little Lamb

On, Two, Buckle my shoe

Peter Piper

Rain, Rain, Go away

The Man in the Moon

Three Blind Mice

And many more!!!

However, many of the rhymes are printed with alternate text that is different from the accepted text – for instance, in “Peas Porridge Hot,”

“Peas pudding hot, peas pudding cold, peas pudding in the pot, nine days old. Some like it hot, some like it cold, some like it in a pot nine days old.”

Note the difference in the word ‘pudding’ as opposed to ‘porridge’ in the more accepted and well-known version.
