 UNNAMED ARTIST, Sam's Picture Book 1893 [Handpainted Cloth Picture Book]
UNNAMED ARTIST
Sam's Picture Book 1893 [Handpainted Cloth Picture Book]
1893. [UNNAMED ARTIST] SAM'S PICTURE BOOK 1893 [HANDPAINTED CLOTH PICTURE BOOK]. 4to. Handsewn cloth-covered boards, with handpainted covers, and twelve cloth pages with two full-page paintings sewn back-to-back to make each leaf. Blue polka dot and pink floral cloth wallpaper serves as endpapers. The pages have some thumbing, and a few pencil marks, but the images are fresh and the colors bright. The front cover is slightly faded where the text begins; a much-loved book. Most of the paintings give the impression of having been skillfully copied from family photographs. The first page is captioned "Ma, Sam, and little Jaky" - Jaky being a black and white terrier of some sort, and Sam being a little boy of about a year. Seven of the paintings feature family dogs: pointers, Boston terriers, bulldogs. One painting is a seaside lawn baseball game in Mattapoisett (Massachusetts). Another is a waterside group of five boys with their toy sailboats, captioned "The Cannonville Yacht Club." Other images: "Granpa's Cows;" "Johnny, Nell, Peggy, Chops, and Judy" (sleeping dogs); "Sam and Johnny" (the toddling Sam with a Boston terrier); "Helga" (the pony? drawing a cart with two girls, another girl leading the pony); "Lex" (a pointer lying on the grass); "Johnny;" "Gran, Ma, Peggy, Jake, and Terry," the latter three being dogs; "Pa and Unlce Louis Bathing at Mattapoisett" (both men in bathing costumes, Pa holding a dog under each arm); and "Ma in California" (Ma patting the ear of a saddled mule). The overall impression is of the sweetest days of a bygone era, a happy family of the upper class at play. The family and artist are not identified. .

BARBAULD, ANNA LETITIA
Inni Giovenili
1832. BARBAULD, Anna Letitia. GLI' INNI GIOVENILI della Signora Anna Letizia Barbauld Tradotti in Italiano ad uso de' fanciulli che imparano la lingua. Nuova edizione, corretta e migliorata da Pietro Bachi. Boston, Carter and Hendee, 1832. Square 12mo. vi,110pp. An Italian edition of Mrs. Barbauld's "Hymns in Prose for Children" had been published in London in 1819 and 1829, by a translator identified only as "un Toscano." Pietro Bachi, an instructor at Harvard, finding the London version wanting in accuracy and completeness, produced this "nuova edizione," with his own preface and an extract from the preface to the London edition. The "nuova editione" is probably in fact the first edition of his own version, as no others appear in the OCLC. The purpose was to help young people learn the Italian language, through the use of a text with which they were already familiar. Original mulberry glazed cloth boards with printed label. Some light foxing, and faint waterstain to edge of some pages; backstrip starting. Quite rare. .
