About this Item

Charming early 20th century children's book with wonderful front cover color illustration. The cover shows a bear in red polka dotted tuxedo leading other animals, an ostrich, and reptiles in song. There are other little animals in the background, including monkeys up to tricks. Frontispiece illustration also in color, still very vibrant. This illustration shows another bear in red coat and blue pants playing a tambourine with some other odd looking animal creatures playing musical instruments in the background. The Palmer Cox brownies look on with interest if not amusement. Other illustrations in the book are in black and white, including a large illustration on the title page. Title page shows a copyright date of 1903. Illustrated endpapers. Hinges cracking but binding still holding together. Pages clean but very browned as is typical. The pages without any brittleness, however. Generic illustration in shade of dark blue and white on back cover shows a little girl with her doll. Condition probably better than average for one of these old children's books, but not quite nice enough because of the hinge cracking and the browned paper to rate a full very good. A few small stains to the front cover and a couple of small chips near the edge not affecting the design seriously. Plain dark brown cloth spine material intact, and the outer binding without any tearing. Collectible. Bookseller Inventory # 1879
