Historical Pastime. A New Game of the History of England. from William 1st to William 4th

Published: London, Edward Wallis

Date: c.1831 - 1832

A complicated children's game, monarchs were good but Edward II was not and the next medallion, with Piers Gaveston, was worse. Napoleon, Jacobites, Puritans and catholics were to be avoided and you could not even begin until you had been to the Holy Land (a bit like playing Frustration). Game consists of 133 medallions and was an early form of Royal ephemera, published around the coronation of William 4th. In 12 folding sections, the game is hand-coloured and linen backed. There are a few spots to game and names in ink to reverse. 48.8 x 48.8cm in slip-case. Case has hand-coloured label, some wear. Like most copies, rules are not present.
