Some light browning throughout; ownership inscription to endpaper: 'Mary Ann Ainsworth her Book,' Boards rubbed with edges and corners worn; spine expertly repaired. A very good copy of a rare edition of Pamela for children. Nigel Tattersfield does not list this work as being by either Bewick brother, so we can assume the attribution on the title to be false. Rare. ESTC records one copy at UCLA and another at the Bodleian Library. F. Newbery issued this title in 1769. [13812]
