Aunt Louisa’s London Toy Books: The Alphabet of Animals.

London: Frederick Warne and Co., circa 1885.

A title from the series “Aunt Louisa’s London Toy Books”, this alphabet is entirely composed of exotic animals; for example, we read:

“K is a kangaroo hopping along;
L stands for Lions, loud-roaring and strong.
M is for Monkey, most mischievous he,
N is a Nylghau from India, you see”.

“Aunt Louisa” was the pseudonym of Laura Valentine who wrote several children’s titles for Frederick Warne during the 1880’s.
