This classic Victorian children's ABC primer was originally published in London and Chicago in 1895.

Exquisite woodcut illustrations and rhymes by Gaskin accompany each letter of the alphabet and combine to create a volume that charms and delights both children and adults.

This new facsimile is the first to reproduce the original clothbound edition of 1895.
