Todd, John.  The mountain cottage. Pittsfield, MA: E.P. Little, 1844. 24mo (10.9 cm, 4.29"). 35, [1] pp.
$100.00

Uncommon Massachusetts printing, labelled "Sabbath School Series, No. 1": the story of a Scottish family settled in New England, and how they found religion. The Rev. Dr. Todd (1800–73) was a Vermont-born, Yale-educated minister and a prolific author of works for children. A search of WorldCat finds => only seven U.S. institutions reporting holdings of this early edition, possibly the first stand-alone; the popular work appeared several times in collections, including the 1842 Works of the Reverend John Todd.
        Provenance: From the children's book collection of Albert A. Howard, small booklabel ("AHA") at rear.

American Imprints 44-6147. Publisher's rose-colored cloth, covers framed in blind, front cover with gilt-stamped title; cloth faded and dust-soiled, endpapers darkened, back fly-leaf with later pencilled notations. Pages age-toned with a few spots of foxing, one corner creased, faint traces of early pencilled gift inscription visible on title-page. => A solid, unmarked copy of an uncommon and interesting item.  (41556)   Please RESHELVE This.
