    Eugene Field. Poems of Childhood. With Illustrations by Maxfield Parrish. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1904.

    Post 1922 reprint. Large octavo. x, 199 pages [1, publisher's ad at the rear]. Eight illustrated plates.

    Publisher's black cloth covers with an illustration by Maxfield Parrish attached to the front cover. Spine lettered in gilt. Illustrated endpapers. Covers and spine slightly rubbed, minor bumping to corners, endpapers and preliminary pages slightly toned, some marks on the front cover illustration, front free endpaper, and illustrated title page. Altogether a very good copy.

    American author, Eugene Field (September 2, 1850 - November 4, 1895) is best loved for his light-hearted poetry for children. Incredibly innovative and seemingly indefinable American illustrator and painter, Maxfield Parrish (July 25, 1870 - March 30, 1966) also illustrated L. Frank Baum's Mother Goose in Prose, among many other works.
