Published by Julia MacRae Books 1986 Now Out of Print.

This is a small volume that I treasure, and at just 3 and a half inches tall by 3 wide, it is one of the smaller books I own. With detailed illustrations by John Lawrence. It is, perhaps just a catalogue of babies: Good, Bad (I particularly like the engraving for the  Bad Babies), Sweet, Sour, Bald, Curly, Fat, and “Fin Ones”… all the way through to “Bye Bye Baby Ones”.

It is sadly out of print, so your best bet to purchase one of these small nuggets of joy – is to look on ViaLibri where you will find (as I did this morning) various copies listed from around £8 and upwards. Certainly worth looking into, though be aware that Amazon does deal through that site too, and I always feel that they should be avoided and ‘real’ second-hand and rare bookshops should be supported where possible…

The above illustration is taken from the Internet. That copy has a stain across the front board and spine. I have to say mine is in mint condition. Do be careful when purchasing second-hand or antiquarian books off the Internet. Unless you really just want the text; the condition is all important!

It is a little gem of a book.
