[Ivory hornbook] [realia]. [England: s.n., 18--].
Page Turner - Bibliographic Information

Books designed for small hands and young minds are a relatively recent innovation. Prior to the eighteenth century, the notion that children were anything other than small versions of adults was a foreign concept. Early children’s literature was didactic, full of worldly lessons and moral strictures.  But introducing children to the world of letters and words prompted fascinating objects. The horn book was developed as the device to drill young students in the alphabet. Often a small handheld wooden piece with printed or incised letters and numbers covered by a transparent sheet of horn, the hornbook served as a young child’s simple aid in memorizing the ABCs.
