Clean, tight, unmarked; light wear to spine extremes; some light creases to dust jacket; dust jacket very bright and unfaded; This picture alphabet book was made in 1859 by a drawing mistress in Sarnia, Ontario. It is the earliest known Canadian picture book. Some of the content may not be suitable for today's children. The book has an interest for the collector and student who will also find Miss Judith St. John's account of the history and discovery of the manuscript one of the most fascinating stories of children's publishing.
