Sacred History, in Familiar Dialogues, for the Instruction of Children and Youth. Vol. II
An interesting example of the texts prepared in the 18th and 19th century to teach biblical stories to Protestant children in the UK. The anonymous authorship by a "Lady" is designed to speak to the book's moral character for children and women readers typically denied access to politically complicated texts.
