This is an illustrated Mother Goose with all the classic nursery rhymes. In the introduction entitled: "What Mother Goose has to say for herself" she claims that nursery rhymes are equally as important as more scholarly books. She ends by stating "No, no, my Melodies will never die, While nurses sing, or babies cry."
The title page depicts Mother Goose riding on a goose and holding a broom.
