Play-Day Book by Fanny Fern/Coffin, illus Mason Brothers 1857/1856.

The Play-Day Book, New Stories for Little Folks.

The topics of these lively, independent stories seem rather adult though they are intended to be read aloud to younger children. "...those for whom it is too old now, can look at the pictures and learn to read, little by little, by spelling out the words in the stories... I meant it to read when you are out of school, and want to be amused." FF's first book, Fern Leaves, was an instant best seller, reprinted many times. It was followed by an adult novel, Ruth Hall. This first edition of her third book may contain stories not included in later reprints. Her work is of interest to feminist scholars. Not didactic.
