Historical pastime. A new game of the history of England
London: E. Wallis, [ca. 1837]. Folio (17.5 cm, 7"). [1] f. Fold-out hand-colored playing surface for a tabletop game meant to teach children about major events in England's history, with the 12 paper panels of the board mounted on linen. The timeline begins with the Battle of Hastings and culminates in the abolition of slavery, featuring a central portrait of a youthful Victoria — possibly in her first appearance in this popular game, where prior editions had George III, George IV, or William IV. This is => the attractive bound game board only, here without the instructional booklet (as is common for these ephemeral survivors). Binding: Publisher's moirĂ©-style ribbon-embossed rose-brown cloth, covers with blind-stamped frame and corner fleurons, front cover with gilt-stamped title and crown-and-banners vignette. Binding as above, neatly rebacked with similarly colored cloth; ties lacking, covers showing water-spotting (less noticeable on front cover). Instruction booklet and slipcase lacking; board age-toned, three corners each with a spot of mild staining, some corners and folds split and unobtrusively reinforced. => An object sound, charming, and, yes, STILL educational!
