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 6¾ - 7¾" 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.
