Oblong, 13 by 22.5 cm. 10 pp., followed by 32 plates, each with small vignette illustrations depicting various object nouns or phrases and sentences. The work was intended as a word primer, arguably an early-ish do-it-yourself textbook, and thus utilitarian, yet the imagery exudes a charm transcending this functionality. Up to 30 of these vignettes on many of the plates. Surely of appeal to the miniaturist. With original blue wraps bound in. Scarce, with only copy located on OCLC First Search at the BNF. Light wear to the contemporary quarter calf, marbled boards. Minimal foxing within. Bookseller Inventory #
