The Nursery Book

£225.00

Product description

Full title: The Nursery Book containing an easy description of nearly one hundred familiar objects with drawings of each object. It also says 'A New edition with Additions.'
Blind-stamped buckram faded gilt emblem to front and spine.
Professionally re-backed with original spine laid down on it. It is a pity but it has been strengthened internally with yellow tape. It has wear to the corners. It has many illustrations some of which are coloured. There are two previous owner's inscriptions, one date 1841 and the other 1938. Some light pencil marks internally and also pencil markings on the final page and back free endpapers.

Overall a good tight copy of a rare survival of early educational nursery books.
