Robert and His School (Ca. 1847)

New York: Lane & Tippett, ND, ca. 1847. Paperback. 12mo (4.4 inches high), gray-green wraps with woodcut illustration on cover, 24 pp, light wear, very good. RARE, only one copy in OCLC at the AAS, dated 1847 by them. Apparently in the collection of the Windham Union Sunday School from note on inside front cover. Robert was lazy and slothful and did not like school; he went over to his friend Frank's house where he had a great time looking through Frank's books and drawings. Frank's mother took an interest in Robert and asked him if he did well at school, which made him grow ashamed in front of Frank. So he resolved to do better in school and was very industrious for the next several years, to the point that when Frank's father needed someone at the counting house to work with Frank there, Robert got hired. Frank's mother reminded him that if it had not been for her intercession, he would have grown up to be a despised dunce. Very Good. Item #H4473
