The Infant's Numerator in Verse.

London: Orlando Hodgson, (c. 1840). 16mo. 6ff. + wrappers. Each leaf presents the reader with a half-page illustration of activities suitable for the time of day described in verse below them. Each image is hand-colored in a variety of shades, giving them uncommon depth. The book weaves counting from one to eight into the daily life of a child, from leaving for school at two and returning at five, to taking a walk at three and rising to play at eight. Although there is at least one edition of The Infant's Numerator produced by Hodgson, the recorded copy was from a series offered at six-pence; on the present copy, the price of three-pence is prominiently printed on the front wrapper. We can locate no copies of this title in the Louisa Lovechild series. Yellow paper wrappers slightly soiled and rubbed at spine, else a near fine example of a rare publication. Item #28910

Price: $850.00
