Harper, (1857). Red pressed design; 5.5x6.7; 192 pp. Juvenile hardback.
Small pictures and an intelligent dialogue to be read by the adult, with excellent pedagogical preface. Armed with this little book, an older sibling could develop a modern child's perception and impart considerable knowledge.
CONDITION: Good; foxed, bumped, hinge starting, spine dulled, contemporary plate from a Lt. Col Military Intelligence U.S. Army Res, tears on several pages closed and overcast with fine thread, which method seems to have worked remarkably well! Item #10065
