About this Item

My Book House was one of the most beloved children's sets of the 20th century, going through several iterations through the decades. This is a hardcover salesman's dummy with great promotional pages in the front "The most important thing in the world.the Human Brain. What it becomes depends largely on training and development in the first six years of life!" and "Your Child is in your hands! A Responsibility? Yes! A rare privilege, too!" 16pp. in front, 22 pp in back. Also, indexes (including "Character Building Index: A Guide for Parents", contents, "Guide to the pronunciation of proper names." Other educational and/or promotional pages mixed in with the rest of the book which consists of sample pages from the set. Unpaginated, roughly 200 pp. Rare; I've never seen another copy, and WorldCat only lists one similar. Bookseller Inventory # mon0000118280
