First edition. A finely illustrated anthology of religious verse, contemplations, and prayers for children. Pieces include poems on the seasons and stories about a Welsh Shepherd, and ‘The Hill and the Valley’, all with heavily metaphorical content.

The illustrations are particularly fine, and include scenes of a shipwreck, a family being waved off on the coach to London, skaters on a frozen lake, and John Bunyan lying asleep and imagining the Pilgrim’s Progress.
