[12] Apparently unrecorded children's word book from 1667, not located in any institutional collection, but no doubt a predecessor to a unique copy of the same title from 1687 held at Bern University though published by Hügenet. Card wrappers presumably as issued with extensive old penmanship, some in French, stained and discoloured with loss to corners. Twelve leaf text (a single gathering?) original sewing. Title page with large central printer's woodcut emblem, shallow loss close to foreedge not touching text and dog earring throughout. Beginning with alphabets on the verso of the title page the book continues with syllables and short words, many of them devotional, printed in columns to aid comprehension, graduating to continuous prose though still divided syllabically. Occasional woodcut headpieces scattered through the text. A rare work.
