THE YOUNG CHILD'S A, B, C; OR, FIRST BOOK.

New-York: Published by Samuel Wood & Sons, No. 261, Pearl-Street; and Samuel S. Wood & Co. No. 212, Market-st. Baltimore, [1816?]. 16mo. 16pp plus original printed tan wrappers, with front wrapper vignette of old man followed by a dog, and rear wrapper vignette of an animal [fox?] looking at an animal's head in a weird, rustic scene. Title page woodcut of a maiden holding a bird and petting a dog. 26 additional, excellently executed woodcuts in text. Light dusting to wraps, Very Good.

This is probably the 1816 printing, one of several imprints from the period 1806-1820, differing primarily in the wrapper woodcuts and the description of the publisher. This one is not noted in the various editions cited by Welch.
