An exceptionally clean and bright copy of this juvenile audience plate book depicting geography and domestic and work life. N.d., circa 1870s. Small folio. 32 by 21.5 cm. [5], 7, [1] pp followed by 30 double-sided hand-colored plates. Each plate measures 32 by 40 cm. The plates depict the home, rural and urban, the city, the farm, a vineyard, tools, a church interior, a city market, a winter skating scene, a mountain landscape, a railroad station, a forest, etc. The point was to educate children about the features of all these places and spaces, and incidentally impart the vocabulary -- the many nouns -- associated with them. Nowadays the plates are simply wonderfully decorative, with their bright chromolithography and evocation of a lost world. And the great Meggendorfer was responsible for three of the plates! Light wear to the cover. One of the plates has a minor closed tear by its fold. But as we indicated, an unusually appealing copy.
