18 pages. Text in English. Wood engraved images.

Scarce pre 1850 juvenile American chap book. Poor condition, heavily worn, cover with numerous short closed edge splits. Rare in any condition.

Book is over 150 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.

Binding well age worn, typical signs of handling from young hands.

Paper is toned, various typical small spots, stains, etc., spine unstitched and pages loosened, covers close to detached, still agreeable given the small size, fragile nature, date and intended audience.

Still attractive on the shelf, it displays a pleasing and unique age patina, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
