1 Harriet and Her Scholars; A Sabbath School Story.
Philadelphia American Sunday School Union, 146 Chestbut St 1827 1/4 leather Good 
12mo 7" - 7" tall; 90 pages; By the American Sunday School Union, 146 Chestbut St. , Philadelphia. 1/4 leather over paper boards. This copy printed prior to the Sunday School Union's move to 148 Chestnut in 1853. Leather spine title lettered "Harriet & Scholars." Paper boards have their marbled paper covering largely missing. Frontis engraving missing, either not bound in or possible removed. Ront endpage neatly removed as well as a corner area of the front pastedown - very likely the product of an owner's wish to remove ownership marks. Binding remains sound but with some weakness and mild internal splits. Complete text, scattered light toning and foxing. Good only, at best.
