A New History of Blue Beard, Written by Gaffer Black Bear, For the Amusement of Little Lack Beard and his Pretty Sisters
John Adams, Philadelphia, 1804. 32mo. 31pp. Illustrated with seven rather crude woodcuts, most of which appear to have been recycled from other publications -- an image of the Tower of Babel, for instance, is used here to represent Bluebeard's castle. A tale with a moral: when Fatima is taken by Blue Beard, she writes for help, "Now only think what a fine thing it is to be a scholar, for if Fatima could not have wrote to her lover, nobody would do it for above all things learn to read your book." Foot of upper cover split at spine, small chip to the lower corner of the same. Near fine in olive wrappers. (Rosenbach 298; Welch 986.4). [Attributes: Soft Cover]
Bookseller: Bromer Booksellers, Inc., ABAA [Boston, MA, U.S.A.]
