About this Item
Printed by B McMillan, Bow Street, Covent Garden in colophon. Written by the publishers daughter, a then 10 year old Mary Godwin (Shelley) adapted a jaunty vaudeville song into a children's rhyme, ''Mounseer Nongtongpaw,'' which makes spirited fun of English bigotry and greed. Godwin published it, the first work of his prodigious child. Later research suggests a more likely author is John Taylor with the story outline being supplied by Mary. He was the author of 'Monsieur Tonson', which was also published by M J Godwin as another Juvenile Library title. CONDITION Original Pink card wraps dated 1813 to front, advertising for other Juvenile Library titles to rear (light age toning and soiling to covers, mildly rubbed to spine ends) dated 1815 to title page, pp 16 with 12 leaves of Copper plate engravings. Internally bright and clean with only the slightest age toning to page edges, original whip stitching to spine tight and secure, no inscriptions. Size: 32mo - over 4" - 5" tall.
