About this Item

7 1/2" x 10 1/4" x 2 1/4", unmarked green cloth with top, bottom, and fore-edge flaps enclosing, with fore-edge flap and front board magnetized; six hard cover sample front boards, with 200-300 pp. of sample pages + order form, etc. VERY RARE salesman's sample book of juvenile/children's titles from 1901, published by the International Publishing Company of Philadelphia. Titles include 'The Good Child's Delight With Pictures Bright and Stories and Rhymes for Happy Times' (an early glazed pictorial board with applied gilt); 'Great American Men and Women for Little American Boys and Girls'; 'The Child's Story of Birds, Beasts and Reptiles'; 'The Teachings of Jesus and the Lives of His Apostles' (red stamped decorative cloth with hinged spine sample); 'The New Popular Reciter and Book of Elocution' (green stamped decorative cloth with hinged spine sample); 'This Coutry of Ours' (blue stamped decorative cloth with hinged spine sample). This sample book cited in "Canvassing Books, Sample Books, and Subscription Publishers' Ephemera, 1833-1951, in the Collection of Michael Zinman" by Keith Arbour; #545. CONDITION: About Very Good. Overall an excellent set but the way in which this 'book of books' was designed, there's no way the front hinge of the set's front board could hold for long, and it didn't; spine heel is worn and has a few chips; otherwise an excellent set with just soiling to the outer covers and flaps; internal boards and leaves are in overall excellent condition, though fore-edge of 'Child's Delight' is worn; otherwise good.
