About this Item

From the author of Peter Parley's Tales: a children's history reader aimed at pupils who had come a bit further along from that first book. The accounts here of the development of Great Britain, France, Spain, Portugal, Russia, China, etc., and the countries' foreign relations, are illustrated with => in-text wood engravings including depictions of Portuguese, Norwegian, Russian, "Algerine," "Otaheitan," and other national costumes; also included in the volume are => 16 steel-engraved maps. While the title-page gives the Boston publication line described above, the printed front cover gives Philadelphia: Thomas, Cowperthwait, & Co., 1838; this is a later edition, following the first of 1832. A first impression is that "child" readers had, in 1832, much greater powers of attention to print than is now common, but indeed the history here is ? the stories are ? absorbing and evocative. 4to (19 cm, 7.5"). Frontis., 180 pp.; 16 maps. American Imprints 50587. Publisher's quarter sheep and printed green paper?covered boards, rubbed and worn; pages cockled and foxed, yet paper good and untattered. One page with stray ink marks, not obstructing legibility. => A good, solid, pleasing copy. Bookseller Inventory # 33716
