 The affectionate daughter; shewing how, when very young, she maintained her afflicted mother, and one of her brothers, by working in a coal-pit; and how providence rewarded her after her mother's death. London: J. Evans & Son, [ca. 1820]. 8vo (17.7 cm, 7"). 8 pp.
$75.00

An exhortation to meekness, humility, and hard labor, delivered by way of the story of => a little girl who starts working in a colliery at the tender age of nine. The title-page vignette depicts our heroine, dejected, having just been turned away from a better domestic job in a three-story home.
        This is an uncommon printing on cheap paper, with the tale more frequently seen in one of the Religious Tract Society variations.
        Provenance: From the children's book collection of Albert A. Howard, sans indicia.

Removed from a nonce volume, now in a Mylar folder. Minor dust-soiling, primarily to last page, otherwise clean. => Very nice.  (41020)   Please RESHELVE This.
