Book Description ReInk Books, 2018. Softcover. Condition: NEW. Reprinted from 1909 edition. NO changes have been made to the original text. This is NOT a retyped or an ocr'd reprint. Illustrations, Index, if any, are included in black and white. Each page is checked manually before printing. As this reprint is from very old book, there could be some missing or flawed pages, but we always try to make the book as complete as possible. Fold-outs, if any, are not part of the book. If the original book was published in multiple volumes then this reprint is of only one volume, not the whole set. This paperback book is SEWN, where the book block is actually sewn (smythe sewn/section sewn) with thread before binding which results in a more durable type of paperback binding. It can also be open wide. The pages will not fall out and will be around for a lot longer than normal paperbacks. This print on demand book is printed on high quality acid-free paper.

Book Description Charles Scribners Sons, New York, 1892. Hardcover. Condition: Good. Dust Jacket Condition: No Dust Jacket. Blashfield, E. H., Rogers, W. A., And Beard, D. C. (illustrator). First Edition. Probable first edition. Stockton was a prominent American writer and humorist, best known for a series of innovative children's fairy tales that were very popular in the late 1800s. His most famous story is "The Lady or the Tiger". In addition to "The Clocks of Rondaine", this volume includes six other children's stories. "¿.In each of which some quaint conceit is elaborated with a matter-of-fact seriousness of manner that is as artistic as it is amusing in its effect. These stories include the title-tale, narrating the experiences of the girl who tried to make all the clocks in the town keep time with her own; a story in which the telephone plays the principal part; a characteristic account of the adventures of a couple on an abandoned steamship; a Christmas tale for boys, which will rank with the best of the author's work; a tricycle story with a climax both grotesque and disastrous, etc. etc. The illustrations are numerous and cleverly harmonize with the spirit of the stories." Numerous engraved illustrations. 174 pages + 16 pages of advertisements for children's books by Scribner's. Book is in GOOD condition; expected wear for a book of this age and genre, but no major flaws. Some rubbing to edges; binding good; child's (owner) name penciled on front endpaper.

Book Description Forgotten Books, United States, 2018. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. Excerpt from The Clocks of Rondaine: Other Stories In an unpretentious house which stood on a corner of two of the smaller streets in the town lived a young girl named Arla. For a year or more Arla had been in the habit of waking up very early in the morning, sometimes long before daylight, and it had become a habit with her to lie and listen to the clocks. Her room was at the top of the house, and one of its windows opened to the west and another to the south, so that sounds entered from different quarters. Arla liked to leave these windows open so that the sounds of the clocks might come in. About the Publisher Forgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
