About the Book

We're sorry; this specific copy is no longer available. Here are our closest matches for The Merry Midgets: The Ninth Bubble Book by Mayhew, Ralph; Johnson, Burges.

Description:

Published May, 1920, either the 2nd or 3rd edition of this popular series, with "EU" code on copyright page and the number 8 on the spine. This series sold millions of copies when first issued as a result of one of the most extensive and expensive advertising campaigns for a children's trade book of that era. The 9th of the Harper Columbia Graphophone "Books that Sing" series, as issued in hardcover without a dust jacket, illustrated in color, with two of the three 78 rpm records, including: "The Fly and the Bumble Bee"; "The Spider and the Fly"; the third (Daddy Long-Legs and the Floppy Fly" is stuck in its record holder (at page 13), with a tear in the illustrated text page and the paper stuck to the surface of the record. SOLD AS IS. Illustrated cover boards are worn, scuffed and somewhat soiled with illustrations still bright and text fully readable on front and back panel. Interior pages are clean and unmarked. Binding is square and solid. Since I don't have a turntable, I cannot test these recordings but they appear to be in very good condition. Sold As Is. This is the 9th of a series of 14 books, issued jointly by Columbia and Harper. The Books that Sing series was the first of its kind for children, combining children's books, illustrations and recordings of songs, specifically for kids. The author patented the books on August 7, 1917. The songs were likely sung by Henry Burr. Bookseller Inventory #
