About this Item

100pp; Fascinating old book for children. It consists of 50 stories, which theoretically are all titled in words of four letters.but not quite. Although it includes such titles as "The Hawk", "The Seal", "The Bear", "The Frog and Toad", and "The Gold Fish", it also includes titles like "The Fox", "The Jay", and "The Owl"; The boards show significant shelfwear, including chips at both ends of the spine, and lost portions of both front cover pastedowns; Inside, the pages are tanned, and have a lot of fingerprint smudges; There is substantial writing on the blank pages at both the front and the back of the book, but it is there mostly to tell the history of the book, which I find very interesting. It originally was awarded to a student, Henrietta (Rettie) Morrow)in Sept, 1882 by her teacher for excellence. She then moved to a new city in 1888, and this is recorded. Both of these are inscribed in beautiful ornamental handwriting. Later, she passed it on with the following inscription "Presented to James Stuart McDaniel on his third birthday by his Great Grandmother, Rettie Andrews. This book is 59 yrs old. I hope you keep as long and longer than I have". This would have been in 1941, so it is likely that he did. Also written here is a poem with Rettie's name attached (I don't think it is original), "When we are old we'll smile and say, we had no care in childish day. But twill be wrong, twill not be true. I've this one care, I care for you"; Size: 12mo - over 6¾" - 7¾" tall. Illustrator: Bond, A. L. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 pound.
