The Adventures of Cinderella, c. 1810, published by G. Martin, Garlick Hill

This little illustrated children’s book cost only 6 pence, coloured! I love that Cinderella’s Fairy Godmother looks like any other matron, and even she bosses poor Cindy around.  I’m intrigued by the other titles advertised on the back cover, like “Jack and Gill”  and “Affecting Story of Little Red Ridinghood.”
