Bargain Book Copy

This is a truly delightful facsimile reprint of an 1885 book with endearing images created by the renowned children's artist, Kate Greenaway. The English Spelling-Book by William Fordyce Mavor was originally published in 1801. Numerous editions followed, including this enchanting version, profusely illustrated by Kate Greenaway and representing a high point in the creation of early pictorial ABCs. The story of the English language - and how the written word, vocabulary and spelling mutated through a maelstrom of politics, economics, and accident - presents a fascinating journey.
