About This Item

12mo, pp. 47, [1]; original printed green glazed paper wrappers.


The work formed part of a series of works under the collective title 'Stories for summer days and winter nights' that were issued by Groombridge in the early 1850's chiefly as 'Reward Books' at three-pence each.

The story revolves around Jonas Jones who was born the son of a tinker and married a 'showy girl' who had squandered his money and promptly died. Jonas is apprenticed to a belt maker Master Fenning and after seven years service becomes a guild member. He travels far and wide for several years before his return to the village where he begins his own shop and marries. He then meets a prince who encourages him and the townspeople to produce good quality work. The story, however, introduces such subjects as drunkenness, savings banks, free trade and the building of industrial schools and is really a moral work in which is entertained the idea that the working class can do better for themselves if they work hard, save, and are dutiful to those in authority.
