Running title: Parley's Tales about Great Britain and Ireland.
Probably based on S.G. Goodrich's Peter Parley's tales about Great Britain, published in 1832 (as in NUC pre-1956, 206:466) and/or 1834, which Goodrich lists as one of his original works in Recollections of a lifetime, II,540. However, BM, 180:799 gives the author as George Mogridge (better known as Old Humphrey) who may have edited and/or added to this text. Goodrich also lists, in Recollections, II,551 and 554, two works with similar titles which were either counterfeits or piratings, one of them published by Tegg in 1842.
Publisher's ads and letter to Peter Parley from a child, Frank Howard, on  p. at end.
Physical description: xvi, 459,  p. : ill., maps ; 15 cm.
