The Royal Picture Alphabet, front cover

If you use this, link here or leave a small copy in the comments -- I'd like to see what you make.

Not in copyright. Published in Eng., between 1854 and 1861. My source is archive.org which is a great site for the curious.

 

I found this by chance one day when I was looking for anything with the motto " Honi soit qui mal y pense" which I collect because, for some odd reason, our mother said this to us each night as she put us to bed, so we adopted it as our motto. Families can be so wonderfully strange!
