Industrious Boy

by Anonymous

Condition: See description

New York: McLoughlin Bros., 1862. First edition, n. d. (ca 1862 - tentative date obtained from publisher's address); 3 1/2 x 4 1/2; pp. [10]; illustrated wraps; closed cuts to tips of spine; small faint previous owner's signature to upper margin of front wrap; illustrated in red and black; minor wear to wraps; a few small spots of foxing to margins not affecting text and illustrations; very good.Part of "Young America Series," this tiny book on morals and conduct, in typical 19th century fashion, does not spare feelings or even try to be delicate and it dives right into the subject with chapters on "The Slovenly Girl" and "The Unkind Boy." To counterbalance the unpleasantness, rhymes on "The Industrious Boy" and "The Orderly Girls" follow. Several copies in OCLC with none other in the trade.
