Product description

Published in 1836 by The Religious Tract Society, a book by the author of 'Little Henry & his Bearer', Mary Martha Sherwood. Illustrated by several wood cut engravings in the text.

Mary Martha Sherwood (1775-1851) was a prolific and influential writer of children's literature in 19th-century Britain. She composed over 400 books, tracts, magazine articles, and chapbooks. While Sherwood is known primarily for the strong evangelicalism that coloured her early writings, her later works are characterised by common Victorian themes, such as domesticity

An early inscription to a former owner on front end paper. Some foxing due to age, binding is little worn, but still a delightful little book.
