The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book contains 800 nursery rhymes and ditties which are the heritage of our oral tradition. All the well-known rhymes are included as well as many rare ones. Special sections are devoted to lullabies and dandling rhymes, toe rhymes, catches, charms, traditional streetcries, riddle verses, nursery maxims, and humorous ballads. The text is further enlivened by 600 illustrations, many of them eighteenth- and nineteenth-century woodcuts and engravings.
