About this Item

No date, but believed circa 1840. William Raine, publisher and printer. In printed yellow wrappers with a woodcut illustration on the front cover and 8 hand-colored engravings within. Sewn binding. 8 pages of text, with a total of 16 pages, 8 being blank. Printing is on one side of each leaf only and each printed page faces each other. Collated and complete. With ads on the rear cover for other juvenile works published by William Raine. A seemingly early US appearance in juvenile chapbook form. 3 copies located in the OCLC. In POOR condition. It appears a dark blue ink was spilled on this piece, leaving a dark blue stain to the covers and to the top half of each page, mostly in the form of a dampstain with faint blue hues and unfortunately affecting each color illustration. Moderate to heavy soiling to the covers, with general darkening. Heavy tattering, chipping and tearing to the extremities, with minor loss, mostly to the lower corner. General soiling and darkening throughout, with same sort of tattering and wear to the extremities throughout as to the covers, and with the aforementioned dampstaining. Overall in POOR condition.
