180 p., engraved frontispiece; 15 cm. Contemporary calf with modern japanese tissue repair to joints; red morocco spine label with gilt-tooled title: Pleasures of Imagination. Frontispiece states: "Publish'd by B.J. & R. Johnson 1804." Apparently bound without the final section (pp. 181-188), headed The Beginning of the Fourth Book, and the one-page table of contents. Early American Imprints, Ser. 2 (Shaw-Shoemaker), 5671. Handwritten rewards of merit preceed title page. Daniel Jaudon presented the book to a student, Mary Parker Fox, whom he mistakenly calls Mary P. Norris on the frontispiece verso. Having corrected her name, her then wrote out a clean copy on the previous blank leaf. Both are dated June 1, 1805, Harmony Hall. Daniel Jaudon (1767-1826) ran a young ladies' school in Philadelphia and was the author of several textbooks. Without the final 8 pages; otherwise, in Very Good Condition: professional japanese tissue repair to joints; loss to edges of spine label, in particular the lower edge; minor foxing; pages are lightly browning but otherwise clean and tight.
