These prints are from a scarce First Edition Victorian children's reader using a Fruit theme to teach the letters of the alphabet.  In most of the prints children are shown with adults collecting fruit.

The colorful illustrations were produced by the printing house of Kronheim and Company.  Joseph Kronheim (1810-1896) came to England from Germany working first as an engraver and then lithographer, opening a commercial business in 1846 in London.

Each print is provided with the original page containing a verse about the Fruit that is portrayed.
