The Real Mother Goose - Book


I’m not sure who the “fake” Mother Goose is but this one seems pretty serious about her stories. This beautiful book features a very long list of rhymes and the book is in very good, vintage condition, as if it's hardly been cracked. The pages have yellowed a bit over the years and it does have a bit of that "old book smell", which I love.
