Cecily Parsley's Nursery Rhymes.

London, Frederick Warne, 1922
£295

An attractive but obviously well-enjoyed copy of Cecily Parsley by Beatrix Potter; the work served as a sister volume to Appley Dapply (1917), both in terms of the nursery rhyme content and the format, but draws largely upon earlier memories and associations of the author than its sibling.
