First US edition of this book of simple stories about Christian missions around the world.
Very good plus.
"Many others besides the young will be interested in perusing a plain but systematic view of this important subject."
Former Christian missionary Mrs. Trembly is dedicated to continuing her work, even if she is no longer able to travel the world. To that end, she encourages young children to take up the cause by telling them tales of people and places very different from what they are familiar with, emphasizing that the children have a duty to bring them to Christianity (whether the people want it or not). MISSIONARY BOOK FOR THE YOUNG, originally published in England, demonstrates how Victorian imperialist values were instilled in Christian children from a young age, profoundly impacting international relations for generations.
