Shipping to United States: $4.00

Here's a very nice, 19th Century children's book in very good shape. Home Lessons or Learning Made Pleasant By Means of Pictures & Stories, copyright 1886 by Joseph Blamire and published by George Routledge & Sons. This primer is loaded with lessons for children of different ages from 3 years old and up. It has fabulous illustrations throughout and the covers are colorful works of art themselves! This First Edition is unusual is the way it is intended for children of different ages. It begins witha lesson on forming the alphabet and works its way through simple reading, nursery rhymes, nature, the body, astronomy, chemistry, grammar and more. Some of what is taught is typical of the 19th Century and not accurate or sometimes even appropriate in today's world. This is a rare book not readily available anywhere that we can determine. Complete, clean covers, some small stains on several pages. Great reading and wonderful to display. $25.00
