Pictures and Stories for Children, To Which is Added The Picture Alphabet 1852. Rare, small children’s book published by William J. Reynolds and Co, 1852 Boston. Interesting book with many woodblock illustrations of children at play and other illustrations taken from the stories in verse and text. Measures about 6-1/4 by 4 inches. Most pages show medium browning and foxing with age and the front cover is a little loose (but still solidly attached and connected). Two inscriptions on inside of the front cover, otherwise not annotated or marked. Hard covers in paper covered boards with a picture engraved cover.
