Thread bindery stitched cover, with 4pp cover with printed ads on three of the four cover pages, plus 32 pages inside, [5]-36, with 15 hand coloured illustrations and 18 stories. Missing title page, however the cover imprint states published in London, Dean and Munday, Threadneedle-Street and A.K. Newman & Co. Leadenhall-Street. Fair to poor condition with covers split, tears to edges and missing a small piece to front cover. The first edition, was published by Dean & Munday only circa 1825 , and this second edition where Dean and Munday partnered with A.K. Newman & Co. which they often did. The ads include one for Hugh Latimer which was first published in 1828.
