KINGSTON, WILLIAM H.G [KATE GREENAWAY FRONTISP.],
Infant Amusements;
0. 1867. or, how to make a Nursery Happy. With practical hints to parents and nurses on the moral and physical traing of children. London: Griffith and Farran, 1867; xviii, 183pp. [32pp. catal.] with frontis. and other illustrations, and some musical notation; publisher's brick-red cloth, decorated in gilt and black; extremities partly worn, very slight rubbing & short split (c.5mm.) at head of spine, early ownership entry on fr.f.e.p. Of great interest in itself as an early practical guide in the field of what would now be classified as kindergarten and pre-school education - drawing heavily on German sources - by an author better remembered for his children's stories, this volume is now mostly sought after because its frontispiece is Kate Greenaway's first published book illustration. Rare.

. Oblozhka I kontsovni V. Kulaginoi-Klutsis. (Avto-keilografiya) Moskva , Izdanie Vserossiiskogo Soiuza Poetov, 1925. 59, [5]pp. 2 tailpieces by Kulagina. In original wrappers with the typographic cover design, printed in red and black, and two tailpieces in the text, printed in black, by Valentina Kulagina (1902-1987). See Compton 1917 - 1934: Kulagina designed a cover for Kruchenykh's book 'Transrational Language' ('Zaumnyi iazyk) which makes a good stylistic comparison with Rodchenko's design for Mayakovsky's poem 'Mayakovsky Smiles, Mayakovsky Laughs, Mayakovsky Jeers'.. She purposely made some of the title appear 'out of key' by allowing some letters to read out of register where the background colour changes from red to black, thus emphasizing their meaning. In contrast, Rodchenko strove to convey the greatest possible sense of order in his carefully spaced lettering.. covers sl. frayed, some foxing in the text, rear cover soiled and with library stamp and marking in ink. Text stapled. MOMA 599; Getty 392; Compton: 1917-1934, p. 79f. (full-page illus. 42).
