Book Condition: Good Plus to Very Good


Original blue-green cloth with two children blowing bubbles in gold on blindstamped boards. Part I begins with words of 3 letters, progressing to words of 6 letters. Part II begins with words of two syllables, progresing to words of five syllables. Dialogues between Mamma and Frank are expanded to include Ann, John, and Tom. By the halfway point Mamma is lecturing Frank about basic Christian doctrine. There are also stories about a lighthouse and chamois-hunting. The book is in quite good condition, with only light foxing on the tissue over the first of two title pages. Since the first title page is of an older style and the publisher is listed as R. Carter, while the second title page is of a plain, undecorated style, I believe this is at least a second edition. Previous owner's name in pencil. 250 pp.
