Little Jane, The Young Cottager
Available from more sellers
44 p. The rector of Turvey, Bedfordshire, describes his methods of teaching Christianity to children: (showing them gravestones and pointing out that many of the dead are children, and that his young pupils too could die, and that they had better attend to their souls; or, more happily, taking lessons from nature in the graveyard). He learns from a "young scholar," the little girl Jane, "what true religion could accomplish, in witnessing her experience of it." Two engravings, the Rev. Mr. Richmond and his pupil in the graveyard, and Jane on her deathbed; "The Lord's Day," a reminder of the necessity of attending church, on the back page. No. 41. on back page. Foxed, but crisp and firm; apparently separated from a set once bound together. Bookseller Inventory # 718vf9
