A New History of Blue Beard, Written by Gaffer Black Bear, For the Amusement of Little Lack Beard and his Pretty Sisters.

Philadelphia: John Adams, 1804. 32mo. 31pp. A tale with a moral: when Fatima is taken by Blue Beard, she writes for help, "Now only think what a fine thing it is to be a scholar, for if Fatima could not have wrote to her lover, nobody would do it for her...so above all things learn to read your book." Illustrated with seven rather crude woodcuts, a grotesque monster gracing the inside cover. Foot of upper cover split at spine, small chip to the lower corner of the same. Near fine in olive wrappers. Item #30068

(Rosenbach 298; Welch 986.4).
