Description
 
10 leaves. In verse. Hand colored. Tells the story of creation, how chaos became light, how animals and plants came to be, and eventually how man and woman were created. Each page has a hand colored engraving on it. On the back cover is a letter written direct to the parents of children that states, "We ask the aid of those parents who regard the highest interests of their offspring. And, in the beginning, we would remind them, that the success of the attempt depends very much on parents. If they will make the scenes here represented the subjects of frequent and familiar conversation with their children, filling up what is lacking in the instruction here communicated, they will ... increase very much the interest and value of the book." Measures 7 1/4" x 4 3/4".  OCLC  - 2 (March 2018) . Covers detached. Sewing repair to binding, though it is extremely loose. Soiled and toned due to age.
