(Paris: c. 1850). Twelve hand-colored lithographs decorate the twelve question cards included in this game, which quizzes children on the scope and purpose of subjects, such as grammar, geography, architecture, and astronomy. Each question card is followed by a response card, which gives the appropriate answer. History, for example, is described as the study of past events, and sculpture is an art form that makes use of three-dimensional natural materials. The collection thus adopts the style of the memory game, while introducing more complex ideas to the young learner.
32mo. (24)ff. Housed in the original box, with a hand-colored lithographed label on the outside of the lid and instructions for the cards' use on the inside. Sheets fairly but inconsequentially foxed, latter dozen toned, else near fine and extremely rare. Item #29994
