Abstract
This tender little (3½x5¼) pamphlet of 30 pages is unusual for its excellent illustrations. Oval in form, they are 2¾ x 2. Several -- like DM (5), FG (25), and DS (28) -- are as detailed as a fine Bewick illustration. Others are less detailed. Croxall is the source of some of the texts, like The Wolf and the Kid (26), though the application is considerably shortened here. For FK (9), we get Croxall's text and all of Croxall's application. Was the binding always sewn as this binding is now? I consider this a very lucky find on eBay!
