The Uncle’s Present

The Uncle’s Present, A New Battledore by Jacob Johnson – first published in 1810.

The original version of this book was an early American abecedaire (ABC) book in Battledore format, designed to open out as a wall poster. Alphabet books were primarily designed for children presenting letters of the alphabet with corresponding words or images. This particular ABC book features ‘Cries’; street vendors who verbally announced their wares for sales, and is beautifully illustrated with charming woodcuts by Thomas Bewick.

In this special edition the text has been created as a book to the miniature scale of 4x3cm. Hand letterpressed and printed on Zerkall paper with 5 individual design bindings.
