About this Item

122pp. This book is part of a series printed by Ruffy and Evans for the publisher R. Snagg and is among the rarest miniature books ever printed. With content intended for children, the printer has ingeniously abbreviated longer words to accommodate more text. Louis Bondy notes that "Because of their tiny size and perhaps also due to their unusually absorbing contents, very few copies have survived; most of them must have been lost or read to shreds." Bound in the original half cloth and mottled boards with a hand-written paper spine label. Slight edgewear, spine lightly faded, two signatures sprung, else a near fine copy in the original state. (Bondy, pp. 62-63; MBN 32; Welsh 2287; American Art Sale 133). (1 7/8 by 1 3/8; 49x35mm.). Bookseller Inventory # 26569
