"They are selected not only from Aesop, but also out of Avienus, Barlandus, Gabrias, Phaedrus, and other fable-writers of note. There is a moral added to every fable, to help the children's understanding. If I have omitted the moral in the last fables, it is because, as the are more like histories than fables, and hte morality to be inculcated is obvious at every line, it would rather have been unbecoming than useful in its usual place." - from the introduction.

Lewis Chambaud (d. 1776).

“Charlotte Elizabeth Tonna (October 1, 1790 – July 12, 1846) was an English evangelical Protestant writer and novelist who wrote as Charlotte Elizabeth. She was the daughter of Michael Browne, rector of St. Giles's Church and minor canon of Norwich Cathedral, where she was born on 1 Oct. 1790. She married in early life a Captain Phelan of the 60th regiment, and spent two years with him while he served with his regiment in Nova Scotia. They then returned to Ireland, where Phelan owned a small estate near Kilkenny. The marriage was not a happy one, and they separated about 1824. Mrs Phelan subsequently resided with her brother, Captain John Browne, at Clifton, where she made the acquaintance of Hannah More. She later moved to Sandhurst, and then to London. In 1837 Captain Phelan died in Dublin, and in 1841 his widow married Lewis Hippolytus Joseph Tonna. She died at Ramsgate on 12 July 1846, and was buried there. While in Ireland Mrs. Tonna began to write, as "Charlotte Elizabeth," tracts for various religious societies. She was very hostile to the Catholic Church, and some of her publications are said to have been placed on the Index Expurgatorius. In 1837 she published an abridgment of Foxe's Book of Martyrs. She edited The Protestant Annual, 1840, and The Christian Lady's Magazine from 1836, and The Protestant Magazine from 1841 until her death. She also wrote poems, two of which, The Maiden City and No Surrender, were written specially for the Orange cause.”

A collection of religious tracts bound together in one volume.

ENL III:149, DNLB p.182, DCB IX:417-19 on Joseph Beete Jukes (1811-1869).

Joseph Beete Jukes (b. October 10, 1811, Birmingham, England – d. July 29, 1869, Birmingham, England).

"Jukes' geological report on Newfoundland had no apparent effect on island history or on future geological work in the colony; Sir William Logan rarely referred to his work, and in 1864 James Richardson spoke of Newfoundland as geologically a "new field." Jukes' work was purelya preliminary reconnaissance, and surveyors, legislators, civil servants, and entrepreneurs in the colony appear to have found it of little value. Jukes' principal legacy to Canada is a valuable record of Newfoundland society in 1839-40. He came into contact with Micmacs, mummers, cod fishermen, and seal hunters, and reported on the hospitality of the colony's inhabitantsfrom the humblest outport to the governor's mansion. He was struck by the coarse, primitive manners and customs and the plain, rugged lives of the people, but unlike some other observers he concluded that "the mass of the people are not habitual drunkards." Despite some disappointment with the "want of manly independence and self-reliance" of the lower classes whom he felt were too easily led, he found Newfoundlanders "simple, honest, industrious, goodnatured and hospitable" with "the virtues of all hardy races exposedto the toils and dangers of the adventurous life." - Richard David Hughes' article in the DCB.

A couple of carefully tape-repaired tears to map (not at folds), two-inch diagonal tear to fore-margin of II.167-8 leaf (which had been uncut), Yale stamps to title pages and pp. I.21 and II.21, else a very good, smart, tidy set. 2,000.00
