London: William Darton, 1824. 12mo, 36pp., with 12 engraved plates bearing 24 illustrations. Absolutely contemporary moire green cloth, a brilliant copy just as issued. First edition, a beautiful copy of this very scarce title that was so popular that it was still being printed into the 1860s. The frequent attribution to antiquary and topographer John Britton is dubious as there is no mention of this work (or any childrenÕs books) in DNB and in 1824 he was massively engaged in topographical works. ÒThe Preface explains that the rhymes in "The pet lamb" are constructed in the manner of "The house that Jack built," commencing with a short sentence of monosyllables and gradually introducing harder words./ Has been variously attributed to John
- The Pet Lamb, in Rhythm, intended as an Innocent Exercise for the Memory of Children. To which are added, The Ladder of Learning, and The Robin.
