Description:

This original wooden "Book House" (c. 1927) holds two sets of volumes: My Bookhouse for Children, a six volume set comprised of (1) In The Nursery, 1925, 448 pp. (2) Through Fairy Tales, 1920, 448 pp. (3) Up One Pair of Stairs, 1927, 448 pp. (4) The Treasure Chest, 1920, 448 pp. (5) From The Tower Window, 1921, 448 pp. (6) The Latch Key, 1925, 448 pp. The second set,My Travelship, is a three volume set, comprised of (1) Little Pictures of Japan, 1925, 4to., 191 pp., illustrated by Katharine Sturges; (2) Tales Told in Holland, 1926, 4to., 193 pp., illustrated by Maud and Miska Petersham; and (3) Nursery Friends From France, 1927, 4to., 191 pp., illustrated by Maud and Miska Petersham. The Book House for children was founded in 1919 by Winnetka resident Olive Beaupre Miller (1883-1968), an American author, publisher, and editor of children's literature. She began by printing children's literature that Mrs. Miller personally edited to meet her own high standards. The individual books were sold door-to-door by a completely female sales force known as the "Bookhouse Ladies." By 1921 when all six of the original volumes were available, the complete set was offered in a cardboard house. The next three volumes, comprising My Travelship, were added in 1926, and the wooden book house was then offered only occasionally as a special promotion, and is therefore extremely rare. The Book House for Children was remarkable for its large female staff, at a time when most women did not work outside of the home. "The utilization of women in all phases of its business activity was one of the unique aspects of The Book House for Children. Not only was there an all-woman sales force but the majority of the employees were women." (Taylor: Olive Beaupre Miller and The Book House for Children). Extremely scarce. The original wooden house is in very good condition with the paint moderately worn and a couple of chips here and there, else fine. VERY GOOD. Color Illustrations. Large 8vo 9" - 10" tall.
