58 (Crane, Walter; Tenniel, John; Foster, Myles Birket; Staniland, Charles Joseph; Cooper, Alfred W.; Small, William; et al). [Baker, Sarah Schoonmaker. (1824-1906).] KEEPSAKE FOR THE YOUNG. A Book of Amusement. By Aunt Friendly, Author of "The Holiday Album," "The Gift Book," Etc. With One Hundred and Eighty [Full-] Page Illustrations
London: Frederick Warne and Co. / New York: Scribner, Welford, and Co., circa [1871]. [1871]. Very good Signed
London: Frederick Warne and Co. / New York: Scribner, Welford, and Co., circa [1871].. [1871].. Very good. - Octavo, bound in reddish brown patterned sand-grain cloth blocked in gilt, black & blind. The front cover is decorated with a blue paper onlay border design blocked in gilt with miniature illustrations including Puss-in-Boots, a frog with an umbrella, a mermaid, a witch, a youth holding up a giant's decapitated head, a boy with a lyre and birds emerging from a pie.

Also with a frontispiece & an extra engraved title page. The flyleaf is lacking & 1 signature is slightly pulled. A very good, very attractive copy.

Deducing from other copies held in libraries, there appear to be two editions, or issues, of this book with the copy at hand being a first edition. According to Chester Topps' "Victorian Yellowbacks & Paperbacks, 1849-1905", Vol. IV, 1999, p. xii, the imprint of the publisher from 1868 to 1871 was Scribner, Welford & Co., New York and from 1872 to 1877 it was Scribner, Welford & Armstrong, New York. Later editions of this book include Armstrong in the imprint whereas this edition lists "Scribner, Welford & Co.". Also, the second edition sometimes has a hand-colored frontispiece and includes four pages of publisher's ads, which are not present here.

The contents consist of stories, each one page long with an illustration on the facing page. The frontispiece is signed with John Tenniel's initials. Among the other illustrators are Walter Crane, Myles Birket Foster, Charles Joseph Staniland, Alfred W. Cooper and William Small. The engravers were Dalziell Brothers, whose device appears on the verso of the title page and on the colophon.

The book is rare. The combined holdings of both editions in WorldCat and COPAC are only seven copies. First Edition.
