A tight, attractive later printing, entirely in German, of this second volume of (rough translation) "The Children's Friend: New Tales for Youth." Charming front board depicts a seated mother reading a book to a young girl standing in front of her, a young boy standing to the side and a toddler playing with toys at her feet. A superb copy, undated but circa 1900.
