Story of William and Ellen.

Wendell, MA: J. Metcalf, 1828. 16mo. 16pp. Illustrated with numerous woodcut vignettes. The text consists of two stories: that of William and Ellen, who are made to suffer a number of unfortunate mishaps as a result of the handiwork of a naughty boy, who gets his comeuppance in the end; and that of Emma Thompson, who pays no heed to her parents and furtively gorges herself on fruits until she is stung by a bee. An uncommon, early chapbook from Metcalf, apparently first published in 1825. Stitching a trifle loose, few faint spots, otherwise a fairly fresh copy in publisher's illustrated wrappers. Item #27899
