About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The uncle's present, a new battledoor..

Description:

Dr. R explains the unusual way in which the pages of this publication were put together: There are "[f]our leaves, the first and last pasted down to the covers, the 2 inner ones pasted together making 4 pages in all." These four pages contain 24 letters of the alphabet, each with a "cry" illustrating it, 6 compartments to a page. Dr. R supposed the cries to be those of Newcastle or York, but Welch dissents and says they are London cries. In addition to the interior four pages, the covers are integral to the educational purpose of the publication: The front cover has a heading "Read, and be wise" and below is the alphabet in majuscules, then a center cut of sheep below a tree with children in the distance, with the numerals one to zero below the cut. Dr. R attributes this cut to A. Anderson. The rear cover has the same heading and below is the alphabet in minuscules, then a cut of horses and handlers and a building, with the alphabet in italic minuscules below, and then the numerals again. The flap with "Come, read and learn" on the outside and the title and publication data on the inside is present and integral. It is not uncommon for this fragile flap to have been lost. 12mo (16.3 cm, 6.4"). [4] ff. (see below). Rosenbach, Children, 428; Welch 1363; Shaw & Shoemaker 14251 and 21546; Hamilton, Early American Book Illustrators, 248; Pomeroy, Alexander Anderson, 330. Publisher's olive printed paper?covered wrappers. Minor chipping to one top margin of rear cover; adhesion of olive paper from a different copy to the underside of the flap! A very few light stains. A very nice copy of this fragile item. Bookseller Inventory #
