Manuscript Copy of Belloc's Cautionary Tales for Children
- 8vo 8" - 9" tall; [Outsider Books]["Children's" Books][In the style of Belloc, Hilaire]. Manuscript Copy of Belloc's Cautionary Tales for Children. N. P. : N. P. , N. D. 10" x 7 5/8". Marbled paper over boards. Six unnumbered leaves followed by 71 pages numbered 9-79, the rest of the book blank. Very good: spine, front hinge and a few areas of text reinforced with archival tape. A beautiful and faithful handwritten and hand illustrated rendition of one of Belloc's most famous works with dozens of hand drawn illustrations. Purportedly created for children, it is a parody of the cautionary tales for children popular in the 19th century. With stories such as "Algernon: Who played with a Loaded Gun, and, on missing his Sister, was reprimanded by his Father", the book was meant for adults.
