About this Item

N.d., circa 1876. (Bearing an inscription from this date plus a single copy on OCLC dated as such.) [35] pages, paginated by sections, and with sixteen full pages of colored plates, some with two illustrations, other with one. Wordsworth wrote "Lucy Gray" contained herein. "Little Ann and her mamma", by Ann and Jane Taylor, is adapted from London to New York. Other poems included are "Hector the Dog", "Frisky the Squirrel", "The Kittens' Mishap", "The Robins' Christmas Eve", "The Wolf and the Seven Kids" and "Three Little Dogs", and these titles give a good hint of the content. Appropriately the inscription shows this was a Chirstmas gift. The illustrations capture our notions of High Victorian style and children's lives. This copy is mostly clean and attractive, notwithstanding wear in the corners and the spine extremities. Bookseller Inventory # 002203

Shipping Terms:

The shipping cost provided automatically by ABE assumes that the item is the size of an average hardcover book. Since our stock is comprised largely of material which is bigger and heavier, we will often need to request additional shipping charges as a result. We pride ourselves on always packing safely, with the actual materials and method of packing depending on the item(s), where it is going, and with whom we are shipping. We most frequently use the post office, but on some high value items, or upon request, we may use alternatively UPS or FedEx. With the postal service, to domestic destinations with lower value items and the automatically furnished ABE shipping quote, we will usually use Media Mail; on higher value items we are partial to Priority or Express Mail. We will always seek to comply with a customer's wishes if they are communicated to us. When we seek additional shipping charges, we pass along those charges at our cost -- we do not add for handling or materials generally.
