Little Boys and Girls ABC

New York: McLoughlin Brothers, 1883. [8] p.: color illustrations; 23 cm. Chromolithographed paper wrappers with front wrapper illustration. Title and publication information from front wrapper. Back wrapper has illustration of three girls playing jump rope on a light blue background. Description in verse of each letter printed on inside wrappers. Each page contains bright chromolithographed illustrations of three (or four) letters of the alphabet, with a single word to correspond with each letter. The four-line verse that also corresponds with each illustration often focuses on different words beginning with the same letter. This is not the linen-mounted edition with the same title issued by McLoughlin Brothers in 1884. Former owner's name on back wrapper: Katie B. Landis. Although the date of publication on the front wrapper is 1884, this was probably issued for Christmas 1883, as the inscription is dated 1883. At head of page [3] also is inscribed: Katie Landis 1883. In Good+ Condition: slightly soiling of wrapper and pages; small section of paper lacking at tail of spine and next to upper staple; crease along lower edge of front wrapper at spine; wrapper separating along spine. Illustrations are bright. A very scarce McLoughlin Brothers alphabet book. Good +. Item #001303
