Dealer Notes
Not in BL; V&A only on Copac suggesting date of 1861; no further copies on OCLC. The Cobden-Chevalier Treaty was signed in 1860 reducing tariffs on the main items of trade between Great Britain and France: wine, brandy, silk from France; coal, iron an industrial goods from GB. As a result, trade between the countries virtually doubled. The boys of ‘Old Albion House’ and ‘La Belle France Academy’ toss up their caps and give three cheers for the Queen and Dicky Nobden.’ Written in verse, this is clearly economics for children. It also presages the spate of ‘Dame Europa’s School’ satirical pamphlets of a decade later in reaction to the Franco-Prussian War. Read & Co. were publishing, primarily for children, from c.1850-c.1880.
