Description viii, 98, [2] ad's. Contemporary half sheep, gilt with new spine label. 12mo. First Edition. Lacks half-title; smudge on title; some fore-edges unevenly trimmed; else very good. This book would appear to be rare; ESTC listing three copies only: British Library; Oxford University Regent's Park College; Free Library of Philadelphia. The book is comprised of verses inspired by passages from the Bible, designed to lead youth along the path of virtue. However, some of the verses are quite risqué, and may well have provoked an opposite reaction to that desired.
