The Juvenile Miscellany, Vol. II, No. 1, March, 1829, published by Putnam & Hunt, Boston.

This small (3.75 X 5.9 in., or 9 X 15 cm.), 108 page softcover contains a variety of stories, poems, even "Conundrums" for older children, with a tissue-guarded frontispiece (shown below).

The stories and articles include:

St. Maur (about Huguenot immigrants) The Savoyard and His Dog The Use of Insects Scripture Illustrations Motes and Beams Thomas Alphonso Hayley Hieroglyphics, and A section on American History

The book is in good condition. T's foxing on the wraps, and occasionally inside. The little spine ends are chipped, and most of the spine edges are split, but the wraps and pages are still bound together okay. Page corners are somewhat bent, and a few are creased. Someone has written, "Edited by Lydia Maria Child" on the title page (just noticeable in the photo, below). This seems accurate, given the time period and her role as an educator. Otherwise, the contents are clean and unmarked.
