[ca. 1820] · London
An exhortation to meekness, humility, and hard labor, delivered by way of the story of => a little girl who starts working in a colliery at the tender age of nine. The title-page vignette depicts our heroine, dejected, having just been turned away from a better domestic job in a three-story home.
This is an uncommon printing on cheap paper, with the tale more frequently seen in one of the Religious Tract Society variations.
Provenance: From the children's book collection of Albert A. Howard, sans indicia. Removed from a nonce volume, now in a Mylar folder. Minor dust-soiling, primarily to last page, otherwise clean. => Very nice. (Inventory #: 41020)
