Winks and Son., Simpkin, M. and Co.. (1865). An alphabet of animals. By a Lady. London: Simpkin, Marshall, & Co.   The Lady in question is full of good alphabetized advice and observation:  "L -- is the Lamb, It is gentle and mild; But the best of all lambs Is a dutiful child.  And that gracious Shepherd, The Saviour, we're told, Calls all the good children The Lambs of his fold."
She also assigns U to Unicorn, and then proceeds to tell us about the Rhinoceros.
