Parents' amusements

The firm of Smith, Elder is not usually associated with yellowback reprints, but when they published a new edition of The Parents’ Cabinet, twenty-five years after its first appearance, considerable trouble was taken to update the book’s design as well as the text. It was issued in twelve shilling monthly parts, each with an engraved titlepage by W. J. Linton and a coloured frontispiece printed by J. M. Kronheim, bound in attractive decorated paper covers. A more expensive two-volume issue in cloth was also available.
