This oversized 1946 Merrill Company Mother Goose Coloring Book (no. 4807) measures 15" high by 10.5" wide. Its 47 pages contain sweet black line drawings of classic Mother Goose characters, such as Mary Had a Little Lamb, Little Bo Peep, Little Boy Blue, Little Jack Horner, Peter Peter Pumpkin Eater, Georgie Porgie, and Simple Simon. Each character is seen in action with exaggerated facial expressions. The pages have been printed on newsprint, which has yellowed over time. Front and back covers have the same colorful illustration of Mary Quite Contrary showing her human-faced flowers and Peter Piper showing his peppers to a seated Mother Goose in bonnet, apron and ribbons with a Mother Goose coloring book propped up on his webbed feet. This 1946 Merrill Company Mother Goose Coloring Book is in very good condition and has never been used. Minor wear on the front cover upper corner and spine. Ideal for use in collage or other art projects.
