About this Item

What a fun find! Poll-Parrot Shoes and the gang from the Howdy Doody Show teamed up to bring Baby Boomers a very cool premium. It's bright and colorful and contains four real photos pasted in -- the star himself, Clarabell the Clown, Mr. Bluster and Flub-a-Dub. The photo shown is printed on the page. There's also music and lyrics to the show's famous theme song (can you hear it in your head?), plus the Poll Parrot Song. The back page spread shows a cartoon ad for shoes and an array of wacky things seen on the show like the Talkascope and the Flap-Doodle. The album measures 8-3/4"x11" and has 10 pages if you count the reverse sides of the covers. If this were in fine condition it would sell in three figures, but it does show some browning and an abrasion on the outer side edge of both the front and back cover and a few little spots at margins. But it's tightly bound and still very collectible. 4to - over 9¾" - 12" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 25710

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
