About this Item

Octavo. Three volumes in one. (24); 30; (32)pp. A collection of three illustrated children's books published together by Dean and Son under the name Dean's Coloured Picture Book: The Home First Book. The titles herein are "The Nursery ABC, or Home First Book" and "Aunt Easy's Poetry Book, for Good Little Folks," published under the Dean and Son imprint, and "Original Poems for my Children," written by Thomas Miller and published by W. Kent & Co. "The Nursery ABC" is lithographed in red, with big, bold letters only printed on one side of the leaves. The remaining two stories are uncolored, including the frontispiece of "Aunt Easy's Poetry Book," which uses the same woodcut as "The Nursery ABC." This collection appears to be part of a series produced by Dean, though there is only one other copy in OCLC containing three different titles. The three books are bound together in blind-stamped brick red cloth with the collection title in gilt on the front cover. Internal split between the end and start of each new story, minor wear to extremities, else a very good copy of a rare Dean production. Bookseller Inventory # 26653
