About this Item

Sole American issue of this German-language edition of Little prattle over a book of prints. A wonderful picture book for children with wood engravings by Alexander Anderson, this small volume contains short stories that deal with conduct of life, animal welfare, and accidents that befall children (like falling through the ice on a pond). => The title-page wood engraving is signed, "A" (i.e., Alexander Anderson) as are some of the other 18 wood engravings. The last two pages contain printings of the alphabet in majuscule and miniscule fraktur, the two- or three-letter vowel and consonant combinations of German, and the numerals from 1 to 0. 24mo (14 cm; 5.5"). [22] ff., illus. Shaw & Shoemaker 17875; Welch 739; Rosenbach, Children, 395; German Language Printing in the U.S. 1690; Pomeroy, Anderson, 289.
