1 By the Author of "Juliet, or the Reward of Filial Affection; and the Port Folio of a School Girl A Visit to the Bazaar
London Harris & Son 1820 Third Edition Hardcover Good 
Leather backed paper covered boards, 5 1/4" x 4 1/4". 92pp + 31 (of 32) handcolored plates (lacks "Shoemaker"). "That the stall-holders are not all women and the wares on sale are not all home-produced also suggests that Harris' book sought to represent consumerism in general. As such, the book falls into the tradition of books about visits to the fair, a reasonably extensive genre in late eighteenth-century children's books. These aimed to teach simple moral lessons alongside the virtues of responsible consumerism, and they sought to delight the reader with the thrill purchase and the antics of members of the fair-going public and stall-holders. In a slightly more refined form, this is what we see in A Visit to the Bazaar too" (Hockliffe Project). Covers are worn, especially at the corners and there is a faint stain and a small chip on the front cover. Internally very good. [Opie B336] 48848
