It is rare to find children's games from the 20th Century complete, yet alone from the Regency period, but the Antiquarian Book Auction to be held on 15th March 2017 includes just such a thing - A Regency children's game titled 'The Prince of Wales's ABC' (BK17/113). It has 26 hand coloured counters with one general counter and is contained within its original circular boxwood container with fitted lid and lithographic title.

This exceedingly scarce Alphabet educational game is expected to fetch £500 - £750 when it is offered in the Antiquarian book auction on 15th March 2017 at St Edmunds Court, Okehampton Street, Exeter, Devon.
