The Child's Cabinet: A Christmas and New Year's Present
 Picture
Publisher: Jeremy L. Cross, 1833 New Haven, CT.
Book. Book condition: Good. No Jacket. Hardcover 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall "'Mingle the useful with the agreeable, ' is a rule which applies to every subject, and to persons of every description. All utility and no pleasure, is like all work and no play; and is hardly preferable to its opposite, an engrossing desire for amusement, without any regard to real advantage. This rule, we say, is applicable to all. Yet there is perhaps a class whose case it meets with most exactness - those who naturally love play; who, beyond all others, are anxious to secure the pleasure which each object may afford, but forget to look whether it possesses any thing of value. To benefit and interest such as these, the Child's Cabinet has been undertaken. It is particularly designed for the perusal of the middle classes in sabbath schools, who have made some progress in the instruction there given, yet have not engaged in the more mature studies of bible classes. The pieces are chiefly in the form of narrations - that form being the best calculated to fix the attention. The subjects, throughout the work, are arranged under distinct heads, or departments. Care has been taken, to give a sufficient variety of departments and subjects, and to intersperse them in such a way, as to add to their interest. Among the departments, there is one on Natural History, and one on Missions; both of which subjects, it is apprehended, are too seldom urged upon the attention of children and youth. In all the pieces strict regard has been had to morality; and wherever it would not seem to have been done by force, pious reflections have been introduced. A large proportion of the articles are selected; some are original, and have been written expressly for this work. It has been thought unnecessary to give credit in every instance of selection, as the parts selected are generally mere extracts, and brief. We commit this little book to those who are interested in its object, and trust they will find it an acceptable, instructive and useful new year's gift." Illustrated with engravings. 156 pages. Book is in GOOD condition. No dust jacket.

They must make their own smithing tools, weave cloth for the sails, spend a winter trapping for furs to pay for the venture. Typically sweet nineteenth-century novel. The book is Good only, with cover and edgewear; some wear-through at tips and spine ends. A wrinkled spot on back board. Some pencil sketches and penmanship on blank endpape rs. Name in ink on front pastedown (which lists other series and titles), and recto of frontis. Some age spots and foxing, mostly in margins.

Grahame, Kenneth; illustrated by Maxfield Parrish.  
Dream Days [Association].

Publisher: London and New York: John Lane, The Bodley Head, 1902..
First Edition thus Green cloth decorated in dark green, black, gilt and a touch of red, showing a castle above a river. Decorated endpapers, top edge gilt with others untrimmed. Illustrations by Maxfield Parrish, 8 full page black and white plates with tissue guards, illustrated title and endpapers, and frontis illustration (a different version of one of the other illustrations). This format is identical to another Parrish illustrated Grahame book, "The Golden Age". ASSOCIATION: This book has a caligraphic plate tipped on the first blank which reads, in full: "This book is the gift of Mr. and Mrs. Foulkers Edwards to the Mary Harbage Chidren's Literature Room at Wright State University. Mr. and Mrs. Edwards live in Hampshire England. She is the daughter of Arthur Rackham whose books are the heart of the Mary Harbage Collection." Note that Wright State is in Dayton Ohio (named after the Wright Brothers). Note also that Rackham's last book illustrations were for Grahame's "Wind in the Willows" in 1940. While this book has a library connection, there are no library marks. There is a previous owner bookplate on the front endpaper. Binding is sound but the front endpaper is beginning to crack. The cover illustration is bright and very attractive. The covers have light edge wear and the wear to the spine ends has caused minimal loss of surface color.
