Cameron, Lucy Littleton.  Two lambs. An allegorical history. Newburyport: W. & S. Gilman, 1820. 24mo (13.2 cm, 5.125"). 23, [1] pp. (wrappers included in pagination).
$45.00

"Fourth Newburyport edition": A tale set in Asia and featuring Peace and Inexperience, our ovine protagonists. The text is illustrated with small in-text wood engravings (rather worn on the cover) and many of them lovely; pp. [1] and [24] are blank and pasted to printed wrappers.

Shoemaker 654; Welch, American Children’s Books, 151.6. Publisher's salmon-colored wrappers with later over-stitching along spine. Age-toning, foxing, and dust-soiling, none of these extreme; semicircular waterstain in upper outer corner of all leaves into text not contrasting greatly with paper tone overall. Closed tear into text of last five leaves approaching no images. => An elaborate and engaging parable thoughtfully illustrated.  (38774)   Please RESHELVE This.
