Desmond Coke (1879-1931) was a writer of stories for boys who taught Edward Ardizzone at Clayesmore School. Coke was a serious collector of books, antiques and paintings which he wrote about in 1927 in his book ‘Confessions of an Incurable Collector’. His friend Chambers Haldane Cooke Macfall (1860-1928) was an influential and very well-connected art critic and historian as well as, like Coke, being a novelist of both historical fiction and adventure stories. He was also an artist and book designer. Coke inscribed this book to the Macfalls for Christmas 1919.
A heavily illustrated selected of 28 ‘rimes’ by Pepler. All the illustrations are printed from the original blocks.
