Family Rhymes and Nonsense.


Green cloth, title in gilt on the front cover. 34pp. Two inserted photographic plates. Some spotting of cloth, yellowing of front end papers, but a nice copy. Verses by the four White sisters: Frances Eaton White (Daisy), Mabel Willington, Elizabeth Selden (Lil), and Susan Sherman. A short preface explains the origins and preservation of these writings, and gives some family details. The two photographic illustrations are of the Old Roger Sherman House in Chapel Street, New Haven, and another house on Trumbull Street. Laid in is a TLS from one of the White sisters, Mabel W. Stimson [she married Henry L. Stimson], dated Huntington, Long Island 1952, regarding the death of an old friend. The White sisters were great-great-granddaughters of Roger Sherman, one of the Founding Fathers. This book is rare; no copy in WorldCat or any other reference that we can locate.
