Bilder-ABC No. 42.

A little Sunday School Prize book, probably from a German American community, with a medal pasted on a blank page, "Little Cross Crown System, For Increasing Sunday School Attendance Official Seal" along with the purple ribbon, laid in, which must have come with it. The coloured lithos of shaded fruits, vegetables, and common household items are really quite beautiful.

Little Learner's A.B.C.

Little Learner's A.B.C.

Very deep chromolithos with heavy glazing intact and fine drawings, made possible by a finer quality of linen than was used later, although the book is not trimmed on the straight of the goods. The precise drawings give good examples of children's clothing of the time, a change from the woodcuts of the publisher's 1884 ABC. Q shows a portrait of an older Queen Victoria with the baby on her lap. Uncommon, in Worldcat. Note: This Book Has Been Sold.

Little Playmates ABC

Little Playmates ABC

The children in the black and white pictures with plain graphics ride bicycles and wear short, plain dresses; the coloured pictures look more like romantic Victorian productions, perhaps from Valentine stock, with lutes and sheep with ribbons and bells. A lovely full colour portrait on the cover of a boy in knickers peering through a knothole attended by his patient dog. is on the front cover, a funny child dressed as a man reading a newspaper is on the back. All in all a nice collection of stock illustrations.
