      In the preface, which is dated Richmond Villas, Cambridge, June 1878, the author says that the book is "a faithful transcript of a series of lectures which were given to various groups of girls, varying from ten to fourteen years of age, drawn from elementary schools, and who fairly represented the children of the working classes in one of the large and densely populated towns of the north of England."
      The LB copy is signed on the half-title in black ink, probably by the author, "W. T. Greenup Novr. 1878. 1st edition".
