A Pretty Story for Children.

Montpelier, VT: E.P. Walton, c. 1835. 32mo. 16pp. (wrappers included in pagination). Illustrated throughout with woodcuts. Contains three short narratives likely crafted around an existing illustration, each intended to instill a lesson to guide morals and behavior in young readers. Walton published in Montpelier in two distinct periods: between 1835 and 1839, then again from 1849 to 1853. The illustration and printing quality suggests this work belongs to the earlier period. Faint creasing and spotting to wrappers, which show brief splits at spine ends. Overall a very good or better copy of a relatively rare work, known in only two institutional holdings. Item #32339
