New York: Frederick A. Stokes Company, 1909 First edition. Thin quarto. , 81pp. Pictorial endpapers, illustrated throughout. Green pictorial cloth stamped in black, blue and red. Very light wear to spine ends and lower corners. Overall, a near fine copy. A wonderful didactic children's book that takes as its theme, "turning over a new leaf." This scarce work incorporates half-page leaves to turn over for each moral lesson, showing Blue Goops being naughty, with the full leaf showing Red Goops being nice. The text provides poems to describe how to behave in different situations. On the verso of the Blue Goops half-page leaf, a short narrative is provided describing what the Blue Goops did wrong in each picture. Gelett Burgess wrote and illustrated several children's books about the habits of strange, bald-headed, idiosyncratic childlike creatures he called, "The Goops." Burgess is perhaps best known for The Lark, and its primary poem, "The Purple Cow." Blue Goops and Red is perhaps Burgess' scarcest work and is offered here in unusually nice condition..
