The Picture Book; with Stories in Easy Words: for Little Readers. First Series No. 7.

New York: Kiggins & Kellogg. 64mo. 8pp. Illustrated with six woodcuts, plus a title-page vignette. The images are highly detailed for their small size—a ship at sea buffetted by rolling waves under thick clouds, and a fish at the end of a fishing line with an entire landscape scene behind it. The stories that embellish the images all bear some moral lesson. These include a little boy finding treasure in the form of his sister and mother, the value of a president over a king, the gratitude that a tired person owes the land's soft grass, and the cruelty of killing animals. Bound in paper wrappers, with some soiling to extremities, else fine. Item #27697

Price: $225.00
