Games for Tables - Squares

Newbery published at "the sign of the Bible & Sun’ in St Paul’s Church-Yard, London. This image is from "A Little Pretty POCKET-BOOK, Intended for the Instruction & Amusement of Little Master Tommy, & Pretty Miss Polly," 1st published in 1744 & generally considered to be the 1st book specifically directed at children.
