The Tiny Picture Book.

Charlestown, MA: George W. Hobbs, (1850). 64mo. (32)pp. Hand-colored vignettes at top of each page, along with two full-page frontispieces and two interior titles. The stated title has been taken from the upper board, but the text itself is divided into two separate stories: The Little Reward and The Little Present. Together, the stories create an ABC in verse. While the verses of The Little Reward are in proper alphabetical order from A through L, those of The Little Present are jumbled. The sole page number of the text, which designates that the letter "M" ought to occur on page sixteen when it actually appears on page twenty-four (both counts ignore the first but include the second frontispiece and title page), indicates that this disorganization was unintentional. Bound in boards covered in green paper. Minor wear to extremities and half-inch scuff at upper board, else a remarkably sturdy and fine copy. Item #27725

Price: $275.00
