Boston: William S. Damrell, 1842. Scarce temperance work for children. Part 1 of Damrell’s three “Picnic Tale” of temperance. Features 16 woodcuts, a few charming, one much more disturbing.
12vo. [viii], 112pp. Fair in publisher’s worn black cloth, hinges separating, foxing, several open tears to pages, substantial loss to rear endpaper, prior child owner inscriptions in ink to endpapers, and a few woodcuts with crude red coloring.
