The Governess or the Missing Pencil Case, also The Country Churchyard..

,

A governess, falsely accused of stealing from her employer, bears the burden of the injustice and finally dies. Not as much about teaching as one would hope, but really lovely engravings in this story. Also a fascinating catalogue of Illustrated Books suitable for Presents and Distribution, most morally improving, also a page on "The Children's Friend" and a page of many illustrated handbills with large reproductions of the illustrations.
