James S. Hodson, London
This English company reprinted the first six books from the
Rollo Series. It also reprinted editions of Hoaryhead and the Valley
Below, Early Piety, Cornerstone and Gems of Wisdom.
The first two Rollo books (Learning to Read and Learning to Talk) were published by Hodson in 1836. This was only one year after the first editions of these titles were published by John Allen in America. In 1839 Rollo at Play and Rollo at Work were published. Later in 1839 School was published and in 1840 Vacation was printed.
(I believe that these were the first UK Rollo's)
