History of the Horn-Book

London: The Leadenhall Press, 1897. Thick Small Quarto. Item #023052

2nd edition. Letter laid in from the author in a return answer to a question the author had written to a John Wilson about Ipswich School., dated Oct. 14, 1897. Andrew Tuer was a publisher and printer. This would be his most important work and still the best study of the subject. xvii, 486pp., (2) pp. Engraved frontispiece, vignette title page with hand-colored illustration, with tissue guard, marvelously illustrated throughout. At the end are 3 horn books laid into a cut-out with cover, the (2) advertisements are nearly detached because of the bulk of the horn book insert. Bound in light brown straight grained cloth over beveled boards, lettering in black within a black frame, lower corner stamped with a gilt crown, green leather spine label gilt, top edge gilt. A very nice copy.
