The Illustrated Birthday Text Book with Quotations from Longfellow.

pp. (iv), 280. With lithographed frontispiece portrait and title, one full-page engraving. Publisher's elaborate brown cloth, decorated in gilt and black, all edges gilt, with the binder's ticket of SMITH BROS., Ivy Lane, and the retailer's stamp of DARLINGTON, Wolverhampton, a very good copy.

*The Preface explains that the popularity of Mack's original 'Birthday Scripture Text Book' of 1866 et seq., made it almost imperative to exploit such success - 'This has made it desirable for the Publisher of the original book to issue a greater variety of Birthday books than was at first intended. Hence the publication of this Birthday Text Book..........'. No copy on COPAC.
