7 [Robinson, W. Heath]; De La Mare, Walter PEACOCK PIE A BOOK OF RHYMES BY WALTER DE LA MARE WITH ILLUSTRATIONS BY W. HEATH ROBINSON
New York Henry Holt and Company 1924 First American Edition Cloth Very good+ W. Heath Robinson 
8vo. (8.25” x 6.25”). pp. x; 179. First American Edition, later printing (“November, 1924”). Dark green buckram cloth decorative publisher’s binding with titles and peacock illustration from title page gilt stamped onto cover; titles gilt stamped onto spine. Color Frontis. with tissue guard and 95 full page and vignette line illustrations throughout the book by W. Heath Robinson. A Very Good + copy with light rubbing to the extremities and a small (0.25”) chip to a lightly faded spine. Walter De La Mare (1873 – 1956 ) was an early 20th C. poet, novelist and short story writer. De La Mare's Peacock Pie, a series of fantastic nursery rhymes for children, was considered to be “his most delightful work” by poetry critics. W. Heath Robinson (1872 – 1944) was from an English family of illustrators that included his father, Thomas (1838-1902) , and his brothers Charles (1870–1937) and Thomas Heath (1869-1954). W. Heath Robinson was beloved in England for his depictions of weird and complex machines designed for simple tasks -- a "Heath Robinson" machine in England was equaivalent to a "Rube Goldburg"; machine in America. His wonderfully detailed illustrations for Peacock Pie fully reflect De La Mare’s sense of fun and the fantastic.
