Descripción

Volumes 7 & 8 (of 12). Printed wrappers, disbound from leather volume. 32mo (3 1/2 by 5 1/2 inches). 137 & 148pp. Engraved frontispiece in each volume. A collection of moral stories, plays and verses for young readers with content partly taken from Berquin and other continental writers of the period, as well as translations and original material by the editor himself. There were a total of 12 volumes of this periodical issued from 1787-88. Some of the plays in this volume include The Natural Daughter; The Magistrate; The Bane of Flattery; and The Deserted Children. Meilan, the editor, also issued a translation of Berquin's "L'ami des enfants" in 1783. The handsome frontispieces (by W. Skelton) show several melodramatic scenes with women and children in period costume. A good to very good copy with some heavy foxing and spotting to some of the pages. The front wrapper is stained near the bottom, affecting the lower blank border of the first frontispiece. Vol. 8's title page is foxed and soiled. The last page of the volume is creased at the corner and has a closed tear and some chipping at the right side. N° de ref. de la librería 4476
