Little Red Riding Hood 1810 Chapbook.

I found myself a little over excited by this discovery (while researching in The British library) of Little Red Riding Hood in a Chapbook published in 1810 in London. Chapbooks were small pamphlets sold by peddlers door to door and at markets and fairs and were precursors today's picture books. There is no happy ending with the grandmother and little red being rescued in this early version.
