W. Belch's Instructive History of Peter Brown.

London: W. Belch, (c. 1820). 16mo. (8)ff. Eight hand-colored, half-page illustrations. Underneath each vibrant image are six rhyming lines of text, which together tell the moral tale of Peter Brown, who failed to heed his mother's warnings and drowned in a pond as a result. The printer Belch issued a number of children's books in this format, though this title is apparently unknown to all institutional collections. Apart from some minor creasing to corners of covers and a few pages, and signatures of former owner on exterior and interior of upper wrapper, this is a fine copy of an ephemeral children's book.
