A propos de cet article

180 pages, illustrations, boards, cloth backstrip with gilt lettering, very good. 4 by 6-1/2 inches. From the preface: "This little work, with its companion, Jonas on a Farm in Summer, is intended as the continuation of a series, the first two volumes of which, Jonas's Stories and Jonas a Judge, have already been published. They are all designed, not merely to interest and amuse the juvenile reader, but to give him instruction, by exemplifying the principles of honest integrity, and plain practical good sense, in their application to the ordinary circumstances of childhood. " From the Encyclopedia Britannica, 11th edition: "Jacob Abbott's "Rollo Books" - Rollo at Work, Rollo at Play, Rollo in Europe, &c. (28 vols. ) - are the best known of his writings, having as their chief characters a representative boy and his associates. In them Abbott did for one or two generations of young American readers a service not unlike that performed earlier, in England and America, by the authors of Evenings at Home, Sandford and Merton, and the Parent's Assistant. Of his other writings (he produced more than two hundred volumes in all) , the best are the Franconia Stories (10 vols. ) , twenty-two volumes of biographical histories in a series of thirty-two volumes (with his brother John S. C. Abbott) , and the Young Christian, - all of which had enormous circulations. " ; 180 pages. N° de réf. du libraire 26406
