A Suit of Armor for Youth

Grimaldi, Stacey. London: R. Ackerman, 1823. With 15 hand-colored copperplate designs, this book is an elaborate morality lesson for boys based upon chivalric ideals: various parts of the knight’s armor are illustrated on separate flaps which when lifted up reveal character traits of great virtue.
