First edition. Sarah Trimmer was an educational reformer, and philanthropist, being particularly interested in the education of the poor. She was a keen advocate of the didactic use of pictures, as exemplified in the present work, which is the third in a series of six series of prints on different topics of world and biblical history, produced in collaboration with the noted publisher of cheap popular prints, John Marshall & Co. An accompanying text volume to each series was also issued.
