The publisher at Old Farmhouse Books was Jon Mayo, a longtime member of the Miniature Book Society, previous editor of the Microbiblophile journal, and publisher of the Bradbury references very commonly used by collectors and dealers alike. This little book is a reproduction from 1878 in which Franklin makes funny jabs at early primers. An example from Lesson XII: Mary can sew with some thread. She has a thimble on her finger. Can Mary sew well? She can sew so-so.
