THE HISTORY OF JOHN GILPIN of Cheapside, A Droll Story. And the Historical Ballad of the Children in the Wood. Price Six Pence.
Glasgow: Published by Lumsden and Son at their Toy Book Manufactury, No date [circa 1808]. 52 pages. Engraved frontispiece, vignette on engraved title, and six engraved plates. Original marbled wrappers with printed label to upper cover. Spine weak with some loss of paper; rear free endpaper absent; blank recto of frontispiece has some staining from where a bookplate once was; else a very good copy of a rare and early printing of this title specifically aimed at the children’s market. Roscoe and Brimmell cite one copy only [Ball]. WorldCat cites one copy also, presumably the same.
