Mavours First Spelling Book.
(N.p. c. 1850). 24mo. (8)pp. Illustrated in black & white throughout. The intrigue of this booklet originates from its likely pirated content. The engravings are eclectic—an image of a rabbit is accompanied by the British royal seal and the seal of the Ancient Order of Foresters—and poorly printed. Also included are a two-page grid of alphabetical examples and a list of one-syllable words. Bound in paper wrappers with engraved upper cover. Scattered foxing throughout and upper corner creased, else near fine. Item #28079
