8 pp chap book. It has an illustrated green printed wrapper, with string tied binding.  The author, Anna Letitia Barbauld, was a prominent English poet, essayist, literary critic, editor, and children's author. Her two most influential books for children were "Lessons for Children" and "Hymns in Prose for Children" as they were considered revolutionary in children’s literature as the books gave special for the consideration given to the needs of the child reader. Barbauld demanded that her books be printed in large type with wide margins so that children could easily read them and, even more importantly, she developed a style of “informal dialogue between parent and child” that would dominate children’s literature for a generation.
