From 1850, here is an educational learning game published by John Betts of London. It is titled "The Multiplication Table in Rhyme" Part 1 - "being the first half of the table consisting of 96 cards forming 48 illustrations". In Original Wooden Box with slide top featuring a picture of two cards on the front, this game consisted of 96 cards (48 pairs) - Each has a multiplication and a few rhyming words underneath along with beautifully hand colored engravings (illustrations) describing the rhyme. It aimed to teach the multiplication tables in a different way by putting together the pictures and rhymes which would help a child to remember the sum. There should be 48 completed illustrations (2 cards per illustration for 96 pieces) but only 90 remain plus a few odd pieces. You will love the 45 complete illustrations with rhymes!! A hard to find learning aide from over 165 years ago! Some expected wear but just a neat, neat cross-over toy!! Divide box is 6 1/2" x 4 1/4".
