A Book of Elfin Rhymes

By Norman. Illustrations by Carton Moore Park.

Featured image is reproduced from 'A Book of Elfin Rhymes.'

The latest volumes in Art / Books’ delightful Children’s Classics facsimile series

This charming children's book, written by an anonymous author known only as "Norman," first published in 1900 and now extremely rare, features 11 rhymes that capture the mysterious and sometimes ridiculous world of goblins, witches and fairies. Children and parents alike will delight at these stories of naughty imps and elves who love to play pranks, tease and make mischief on humans, animals and one another. And while few of these fairy tales have a happy ending, all of them offer the reader a moral lesson of sorts.

Each verse is accompanied by several drawings by illustrator Carton Moore Park in either one, two or three simple colors in a style that not only conveys the magic of the fairy realm, but is also strikingly modern in character.

This facsimile edition is bound with a silkscreened cloth cover and printed on high-quality paper to create a collectible object that recipients young and old will treasure long into adulthood. It is the latest volume in a series of special facsimiles of historic illustrated children's titles selected and produced by Art / Books.

A facsimile of a rare 1900 children's book of 'Elfin Rhymes' is new from Art / Books

Featured image (from the rhyme, "The Fight for the Mushroom") is reproduced from A Book of Elfin Rhymes—a facsimile of a rare but classic clothbound 1900 children's book authored by an anonymous writer known only as "Norman" and illustrated by the Scottish artist Carton Moore Park. The book is introduced with the following text, which perfectly sums up what it's all about:
Said Rosie, "And is there an elfen-land?
Are goblin stories true?
Did you ever see a fairy's wand?
Do the fairies talk to you?
Are they far away or near us?
When we're speaking can they hear us?"

Said I, "There is really a fairy-realm,
Not so very far away.
Shall we sit in the shade of this great old elm
And visit it for a day?
For we'll find its true location
In the realm of the Imagination."
