Philadelphia: Benjamin Warner, 1821. First American edition. Hardcover. A nice copy of this delicate little pamphlet, housed in a later cloth chemise and morocco slipcase, likely one of the original copies which accompanied A. S. W. Rosenbach's deluxe edition of Early American Children's Books.

16mo, 16pp, 8 delightful copperplate engravings. Very slim square, original plain brown stiff wrappers. Text pages are somewhat browned as usual, frontispiece inserted at an angle. Still a choice copy of this rare American edition. First and last plates pasted down into the covers, as in the Rosenbach copy (no. 616). Slipcase of blue morocco, five raised bands, gilt title. The slipcase spine is sunned, a little rubbed with a slim stain on the front along the spine. A very nice copy of this rare American edition. Item #26462
