No date, but an inscription inside the cover is dated 1870. Pretty hard to say if this has any relation to reality. Cover is worn & soiled, rubbed at the edges. The cover is paper over boards. Paste-down shows old Mother Goose walking alongside her goose. Fep is missing, and both inner hinges have been repaired. The page edges are very irregular, showing they have been reglued into the binding. This is not the more common later "Mother Goose's Rhymes, Chimes & Jingles".

The book appears to be very good, with surface soil, and rubbing to the edges. However, some of the full page illustrations have been removed. There are about 10 pages missing from the book. No, all of the full page illustrations have not been removed. No residue or remnants, so I wonder if some of them have simply come loose from the binding.
