Fine in Fine dustwrapper. Cloth, 8vo, 24 cm, xvii, 180 pp. "In the early nineteenth century the prevailing influence in children's books was the promotion of morality, coupled with instruction. So Benjamin Tabart showed no little courage when, within three years of opening his Juvenile Library in Bond Street, he launched out into the publication of a series of well-produced fairy-tales and nursery stories. The description of some 190 books published by Mr Tabart includes accounts of the contents, comments on quality, contemporary reviews, and details of reprints. Part II lists titles advertised by Mr Tabart as his publications and as being on sale in his shop but not found with his imprint. Brian Alderson contributes an essay on the illustrating of two of Tabart's books; and in the Introduction Maqorie Moon discusses Tabart's publishing career, and gives the few facts known about his family life."-from the blurb.
