Product Information

Old Aunt Elspa's ABC

Product Code: OLDX0BGO9


Insanity and genius! First published in 1884, but recalling the style of a century earlier, this delicious little alphabet primer is lavishly illustrated with naïve woodcuts, and each letter described by means of a charming little verse. The numbers one to ten are also covered, and at the rear you'll find some lovely advertisements to entertain the grown-ups into the bargain. A treasure!

"We've finished our lessons,
And had a good day:
Let's give old Aunt Elspa
Just one - HIP HOORAY!"

24pp softback facsimile of a book first published in 1884 "atte ye signe of ye Leadenhalle Presse".
