A curiosity, as it appears the text block is composed of a portion of a larger work. Seems the publisher was cutting up larger books to make these smaller pamphlets for young students learning to read.
Item is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper covers gently age worn, slight rubbing, small corner chip at top right, remains overall clean and attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently toned, signs of handling, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The fragile pamphlet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
