“Cinderella” 1810.

adventuresofcind00londiala_0008The Adventures of Cinderella; 1810; G. Martin, Cheapside in London.
A short and wonderfully illustrated version of the Cinderella tale most probably dating from the early 19th century (no date can be made out in the book itself).
The rhymes often work best when said with in a Georgian cockney drawl, e.g. “born” and “gone”.
Strangely the last part of the tale seems rather rushed, maybe they ran out of room?
