1 I. F. M. [possibly Mary Godolphin] - adapted by Swiss Family Robinson - in words of one syllable
New York McLoughlin Bros. [1889] Hardcover Good Chromolithographs unattributed 
Contains 6 chromolithograph plates [artist unattributed], this is an abridged / rewritten version of Johann David Wyss's classic that has been reconstructed for younger readers only using words with one syllable. Several books of this type were published, i.e. rewritten in one syllable. When this title was published by Routledge in London, Mary Godolphin was cited as the author which makes me think that the author credited here, I.F.S., is Ms. Godolphin. Its an interesting series of books and this is nicely presented with the chromolithographs, if a little age weary. Tan cloth boards with gilt titling and black / red/ blue / white illustration to front. 245x200 mm. 112 pp. Condition: Corners worn; top / tail of backstrip bumped and worn through in a couple of places. Generally grubby / stained boards. Front and rear hinges cracked. The interior is clean and complete, although the paper is age browned with very minor spotting to about three pages. 
Price: 25.00 GBP
