Description
 
42 pp, paper wrappers with black and white illustrations. Originally published as an anti-slavery newspaper, entitled the "Youth’s Cabinet", the magazine changed drastically when it was purchased by Francis C. Woodworth in 1846. Woodworth’s Youth’s Cabinet focused on geography and history, or on Christian morality. While there are some illustrations throughout, the pages are general dense with text and its stories are subjects are viewed through a narrow moral aperture. Some stories in this volume are: 'Cousin Helen and her Pets', 'The Deserted College', and 'Conscientious Obedience'. Measures 9" x 5 3/4" . Paper covers show some wear, particularly around the edges. There is a small tear to the top of the binding. Moderate foxing and toning, the last few pages have heavy foxing. Minor penciling on a few interior pages.
