Minxes Admonished was published by Sandford at the Golden Cockerel Press for Russell Flint who commissioned and paid for it, as he had done previously with One Hundred and Eleven Poems by Robert Herrick. Russell Flint provided both the illustrations and the text which, as Sandford writes in Cock-a-Hoop, was “a series of light-hearted but observant essays and a pleasant variety of minxes to adorn them”.
