Warne's Pleasure Book For Girls no.6

Look how far this has travelled down the long dusty road of time...the handwritten dedication almost brings a tear to my eye. Eileen may be gone now, but her artwork lives on...see how she amused herself one day with the egg and spoon race illustration. No credit for the real artist, but I hope you'll savour these colour plates as much as I do since they have all the style of a Vogue fashion shoot. Some of you may find the story title 'A Muff At Games' amusing. Those who are bewildered, look up 'muff' in a slang dictionary. I couldn't resist scanning it!
