These charming children's prints are from a late 1800s series titled Father Goose based loosely on the verse and pictures found in the Mother Goose stories.

The verses were authored by L. Frank Baum (1856-1919), an American children's author.   During his lifetime he authored over 55 novels and is best known for The Wonderful Wizard of Oz.

The illustrations are by W. W. (William Wallace) Denslow (1856-1915).  Denslow was an editorial cartoonist with a strong interest in politics, and a close collaborator of Baum's in illustrating a number of his works.

In paying tribute to the Mother Goose stories, the author and illustrator note in the introduction "These are newer jingles and pictures for children of to-day, and intended solely to supplement the nursery rhymes of our ancestors."
