This small book is a reproduction of a book of illustrated moral stories, published in about 1830 by Hodgson & Co, of Newgate Street in London. So it is both an engravers book and a book of text, but I have included it among the engravers, even though the artists are not known. It was intended as a book of short tales to instruct young people about how best to live their lives
with prose explanations and poetical applications. The cover is probably a facsimile of the title page.
