Pages crisp & clean throughout. *Rare early Christmas book for children, with nice engraved frontispiece, and dedication dated Dec 25, 1804 to "Miss Eliza Phillips, a young Lady who, on this day, completes her 7th Year, With Wit and Beauty sufficient for Seventeen". A note then follows: "N.B. The Editor, as a suitable encouragement to his young Readers, to exert their skill in solving the Enigmas and Problems in this Work, recommends that the Mince Pies, in all regular families, shall be divided in the proportion of the number of solutions made by the several candidates". The identity of The Editor as Eliza's father Richard is firmly established by the matching registration of her birth in PRO RG4/4661 (Eliza daughter of Richard Phillips and Elizabeth Griffiths, born St Paul's Churchyard 25 Decr. 1797 - photocopy laid in). See also DNB article on Sir Richard Phillips, bookseller & author (1767-1840), and Osborne Vol 1 p223, Vol 2 p850 (1807/1805 editions) which don't identify the editor/author of this delightful children's book (Gumuchian 4045).
