Redfield's Toy Books, Third Series, No. 12. Chapbook. 4 1/4 x 2 7/8 inches. 16 pp. Eight woodcuts; text clean, unmarked, minor soiling on title page, very minor toning. Peach printed wrappers, woodcut on front, publisher's advertisement on back, stitched; binding square and tight, very minor stains on front, minor shelf wear. Very Good. Very nicely preserved copy of this little chapbook. The verses herein were extracted from Original Poems for Infant Minds by Jane and Ann Taylor, first published in 1805. Jane's most famous work, "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" (originally just "The Star"), often goes uncredited. The dating derives from the publisher's location on the front cover: Kiggins & Kellogg published at 123 & 125 William St. from 1856 to 1858.
