New York: American Tract Society, nd (ca 1860-1880). Hardcover
A moral and cautionary tale for children, set in an English village. One of many books produced by the American Tract Society for use in Sunday schools, now all quite hard to find. A small volume measuring 6 3/4 by 4 1/2 inches, bound in original dark red cloth with gilt lettering and black decorations on the spine. Three attractive engraved plates. 112 pp. Some wear and overall soiling to the cloth covers, an older Sunday school library book with remnants of label on spine and a bookplate inside front cover, but overall sturdy and good condition. .
