Hotel de Belle Vue à Deutz vis-à-vis de Cologne tenu pour J.A. Kimmel. [
A ambitious lithograph advertisement for the Hotel de Belle Vue in Deutz, facing Cologne over the Rhine. The finely engraved view of the hotel shows it with its surrounding park lying on the Rhine which is bustling with barges, there is a bridge crossing the river full of promenading people. The litho map of Cologne indicates the places worth visiting in the city. The verso of the broadside is entirely taken up with a litho panorama of the Rhine from Cologne, over Dusseldorf to Mainz. On either side are litho maps for the railway journey from Cologne to Berlin and from Cologne to Paris, at the bottom there is a view of Cologne cathedral.

First edition thus of Thomas Day’s wildly popular story for children, here in ‘a more reduced form’ as ‘the price of the original work may be incommodious to … young readers’. This was was not the same text as the ‘Abridged’ version first published by Wallis and Newbery (and by Darton in 1800). This edition excludes most of the original work’s numerous educational digressions but largely leaves the plot untouched. The ‘Advertisment’ also notes that readers who would prefer the original three volume edition can also acquire it from the present publishers, who had bought up the remaining stock.
