Amusing Pence Table in Verse
Preston
The book this image comes from was used in a display of material from the Spencer Collection at the Harris Library, Museum and Art Gallery in Preston from October-November 2012. This collection of children's books is of national significance. It was collected by John Henry Spencer (1875-1952), a distinguished local historian and book collector, and was donated to the Harris Library in the late 1940s and early 1950s. It comprises children's books published during the late eighteenth century up to the present day. The collection also contains approximately four hundred chap books.

This book was published in London by Dean and Co. around 1845. The Pence Table in verse would have been an 'entertaining' way to teach the rudiments of mathematics and monetary units.
