Nursery Rhyme Illustrations

I’ve just started adding illustrations from The Only True Mother Goose Melodies to my nursery rhyme site, Mama Lisa’s House of Nursery Rhymes.  This book was published and copyrighted in Boston in 1833 by Munroe & Francis.

All the rhymes from the book are already part of the site.  So it’s nice to add these classic illustrations.  They look like they were done as block prints.  Here you can see their version of Baa Baa Black Sheep…


Baa, baa, black sheep, have you any wool?
Yes, marry have I, three bags full,
One for my master, and one for my dame,
And one for the little boy that lives in the lane.

I’ll try to pick out some of my favorites and post them here as I go through the illustrations.

Hope you enjoy them!
