W. J. Reynolds and Co. as well as Brown, Taggard and Chase published The Rollo Copy Books. These 8″ x 6.75″ pamphlets. There are 12 leafs with lines to practice handwriting.

The covers have illustrations from Rollo’s Tour in London. Two different covers have been seen and are shown below. It is not known whether other covers exist. Both books state that there are six Rollo books in the series. Probably these were published by both firms in the 1856 time frame.

These pamphlets are among the rarest Rollo items.
