Nursery Rhymes (2)

This transformation pack was produced by an unknown maker around 1880.

The pack is usually called Nursery Rhymes, like several other packs with similar designs. I am also showing an earlier version by MacLure, MacDonald & MacGregor from my collection.

The different versions have always been redrawn. When comparing the two packs shown here, you can easily note differences in details, e.g. very clearly on the Six and Four of Clubs, and on the Ten of Hearts.

The version shown here differs from all other editions by having coloured Aces. Note that my pack is incomplete, it lacks the Eight of Cubs, but there are two copies of the Ten of Clubs.
