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.
