Abstract
These four alphabet pamphlets present on their covers pictures frequently used elsewhere, especially, I believe, on trade cards. Internally they are identically constructed on three different types of paper: heavier stock -- but not much heavier -- for the covers; lighter-colored paper for "La leçon de Grandmère" and a centerfold of a monkey showing a magic-lantern exhibit of the alphabet's letters; and darker paper for the letters of the alphabet and the fable. The format for each booklet is identical except for the cover and 3-4. The identical elements are: capital letters (1); accents and punctuation marks (2); "La leçon de Grandmère" (5-8); syllables (9-10); apostrophes and numerals, Arabic and Roman (11); and lower case letters, both vowels and consonants (12). I find it surprising that someone published a series of books including so much repetition. Here the DW text occupies 3-4. The cover has a picture of a plump seated person with uniform and weapons chatting with a thin rustic in poor clothing. The latter holds a simple walking stick. Inside this picture is a medallion of a dog and a wolf.
