A Musical Game for children invented by L.M. Drummond Esq - 1806
On the game sheet “published for Didier and Tebbett. at their repository of instructive games for children and Juvenile Library of English, French and Italian books No 75 St James St, London 1806".
The only reference we can find to this game is a copy in the British Library – that is also without instructions.

Didier & Tebbitt published a number of games in the early 1800s, including:
An Historical Game of the Romans (1805) and
Historical Game of the Kings of England (including The Memorable Events of their reigns adapted to the Juvenile Capacity)(1804)
There seemed to be a link to Abbe Gaultier, as he is mentioned in some description and seems to advertise in the instruction booklets.

Musical Game - Condition - Sheet only / undamaged - but foxed / slight paper raise near bottom

Postage Free.
