"The Oxford Nursery Rhyme Book" Assembled By Iona And Peter Opie, Additional Illustrations By Joan Hassall (Oxford University Press, London 1963 - first published in 1955), Part - 2


And now we know what happened after Jack and Jill fell down the hill...Beautiful and amusing woodcuts illustrating these ever popular nursery rhymes in this 1950's collection. The smacking of Jill would not have been allowed nowadays of course, as the Social Services would intervene and take her away!!
