Book Description Printed for N. Hailes, London, 1834. Fourteenth edition. viii, 240pp, [4]. With two terminal leaves of publisher's advertisements. With 16 woodcut vignettes by Thomas Bewick. Contemporary green morocco backed marbled boards, lettered in gilt. Rubbed, corners bumped. Numerous ink ownership inscriptions of the 'Miller' family dating from the 1840's, else internally clean and crisp. The work of educationist Sarah Trimmer (1741-1810), Fabulous histories, first published in 1786, aims to teach young children to treat kindly all the animals of creation through an innovative narrative which juxtaposes the lives of a human family with a family of robins. Such was the popularity of the robins that the titles of later editions were altered to place more emphasis on the children. The fables continued to be printed in numerous, occasionally bowdlerized, forms throughout the nineteenth century. Size: 12mo. Bookseller Inventory # AQ14167
