      [5]6-95[1]pp. Illustrated with fifty-four woodcuts, illustrating two complete alphabets, of which probably 25% are by Thomas Bewick or from his workshop. Recently bound in 18th century Dutch floral paper-covered boards. Lacks the original first blank leaf, one leaf cropped with loss of running title; else an excellent copy of this rare juvenile.The means of discovering ones fortune and the answer to a question is by pricking pages that contain a table with a pin. This no doubt accounts for the rarity of this little book which would not have survived for long if constantly punctured. This copy appears never to have been used.ESTC lists five copies only; British Library, the University of California; the University of Wisconsin and two at the Pierpont Morgan Library. Not in Osborne, Oppenheimer or Gumuchian.
