1840-1856 RARE Grandpapa Pease's Dame Hecket - Children's Book
This is an extremely rare children's picture book published by E. H. Pease and Company in Albany, NY. These books never had a date of publication but were published somewhere between 1845 and 1856. There are several other books in this series and two of them include Grandpapa Pease's Mother Goose and Grandpapa Pease's Perrault Cinderella and the Little Glass Slipper. When searching the internet for information on Dame Hecket, the only books in this series that I could find were the two titles just listed.
Dame Hecket has some damage, old taped repairs, and pencil scribbling on one interior page and the top of the back cover. The book is still firmly attached by its string binding and is made entirely of paper.
The back cover advertises Pease's Great Variety Store, games, historical amusements and more. Its yellow covers are still bright and easy to read with the entire book intact at the spine. It can be easily read but the paper pages are delicate. It measures 10 3/4" x 7" and has heavy wear on both its exterior and interior pages.
VERY RARE and intact, this is a wonderful mid 19th century young child's picture book.
