1. Under the Window. Pictures & Rhymes for Children. Written and illustrated by Kate Greenaway. George Routledge & Sons., London [1878]. First edition. first issue.

    Under the window is my garden,
    Where sweet, sweet flowers grow;
    And in the pear-tree dwells a robin,
    The dearest bird I know.

    Tho’ I peep out betimes in the morning,
    Still the flowers are up the first;
    Then I try and talk to the robin,
    And perhaps he’d chat—if he durst.
