About this Item: New York: Graham & Matlack, circa 1914., 1914. Two separate Graham & Matlack publications bound within a single book and printed entirely on limp linen cloth. Unpaged - 24 pages total including covers. H 28cm x L 24.5cm. CHILDHOOD (pages 1-6 and 19-24) of the Graham & Matlack Pastime Linen Series and HANS BRINKER PICTURE BOOK (pages 7-18) of the Graham & Matlack All Linen Series. Very strong creasing and curling to corners throughout with some frayed threads along edges. Book features twelve full-page color illustrations which reflect a Victorian flair but have only modest brightness rather than vibrant color as most have some muted tones from pervasive wrinkling and soiling which adversely affects the images' crispness. Pictorial front cover of CHILDHOOD shows blonde-haired boy or girl with red hat sitting of rocks over a stream presumably ready to fish with a stick in his/her hand (same image is duplicated on page 20); pictorial rear cover shows blond haired girl in green dress and red bows and red-white skirt. Verso of front cover starts children's story titled "Ethel's Family" but text and single-tone illustrations are heavily faded. HANS BRINKER cover on page 8 shows young boy atop horse with canal and windmill on right and girl, tree, and geese on left. Again associated Brinker text is heavily faded almost to illegibility with very muted single-tone illustrations. A poor copy but still a charming early 20th century American juvenile illustrated reader. Seller Inventory # D17-10143

About this Item: New York: Graham & Matlack, circa 1914., 1914. Unpaged - 12 pages total including covers and printed entirely on limp linen cloth. H 28.25cm x L 23.75cm. Strong creasing and curling to bottom corners throughout with top corners more moderately affected, some frayed threads along edges. Features eight color illustrations on six pages (including covers) all of which reflect a Victorian flair and retain modest brightness as most have some muted tones from wrinkling and soiling. Front cover shows bonnet-clad women standing among cattle, horses, pigs, chickens, ducks, etc.; rear cover shows two young girls, presumably sisters, in a barn with small dog and several calves with the younger girl sipping from a mug held by the older sister. Two-tone illustrations and text on interior pages show some fading but are still quite legible. Published as a child's alphabet book and reader as text and both the color and b/w illustrations provide images phonetically associated with each letter with some alliterative qualities as well, i.e. "A is for Alice and for Auntie," E is for Edgar the bull calf," "K is for Katie the kitten," "Q is for Queen of the ducks, quacking to her queer children," "S is for Sammy and Snarleyow watching the swans sailing and swimming," "U is for Uncle Ulysses, the blacksmith under the shed," etc. Although OCLC does list a number of similarly titled "Farmyard ABC" books there are no citations for any member libraries possessing a Graham & Matlock edition. No publication date is provided and, although the illustrations are more late Victorian in style without any Art Nouveau influence, it seems likely that it was published circa 1914 as Graham & Matlack issued several other linen cloth books that same year. Only a good copy at best but still a charming early 20th century American juvenile illustrated reader. Seller Inventory # D17-10142

The Dartons, Publishers of Educational Aids Pastimes: SHEFRIN, Jill.

About this Item: Costson Occasional Press,, Los Angeles:, 2009. cloth in dust jacket. First Edition.. large quarto, 522 pp. Winner of the Justin G. Schiller Prize (Bibliographical Society of America) and the F.J. Harvey Darton Award (Children's Books History Society). Nominated for the International Bibliographical Prize (International League of Antiquarian Booksellers). Catalogue of alphabets tiles, battledores, block puzzles, cards, jigsaw puzzles, educational aids, board games, maps, map samplers, pictures sheets, scrolls and writing sheets published by the Darton firms. With a history and vade mecum of teaching aids and pastimes. Companion volume to Lawrence Darton, The Dartons: An Annotated Check-list of Children's Books Issued by Two Publishing Houses 1787-1876. Focusing on the output of a single publishing family, this lavishly illustrated volume brings together for the first time the rich diversity of teaching pastimes and ephemera issued by the print trades in this period. It offers a picture of a little explored chapter in the history of publishing for children in England through a comprehensive bibliographic record of the material culture of education as issued by one family of booksellers. William Darton and his son (also William) were among the busiest and most prolific publishers of children's books in the early nineteenth century. Their books were the subject of a massive bibliography by their descendant Lawrence Darton, published in 2004. But that work excluded the Dartons' educational games, toys and teaching aids. In this successor volume Jill Shefrin has documented the family's massive involvement in another juvenile market. Finding the ephemeral objects issued by the Dartons and describing them in such meticulous detail has been the work of some seven years delving among private and public collections on two continents and, as Iona Opie says, Jill Shefrin's marvelous volume is not only important for its new insights but fascinating as well. It will be a valuable tool both for historians of children's books, and for scholars of education and culture. With 284 color illustrations. Design and typography by Patrick Reagh and Patty Holden. Very fine, without flaw. Seller Inventory # 26585

About this Item: S. Babcock, New Haven, 1849. Illustrated.16 pp. 1 vols. 32mo (4-1/4 x 2-3/4 inches). A compendium of children's games, including a relatively early mention of baseball, as well as two illustrations of the game, one of which is a full page. Any pre-Civil War baseball references are hard to find. This is fine copy of this fragile pamphlet. Rosenbach's "Early American Children's Books" lists several similarly titled volumes, but none that seem to conform to this in exact contentsBlock, "The precise publishing date of this chapbook is not certain because the title-page shows 18949 while the cover shows1850. The book contains a section called 'Playing Ball, ' which includes the passage: 'There are a great number of games played with balls, of which base-ball, trap ball, cricket.are most common. It contains two wood-cuts of 'base-ball,' one showing a rudimntary scene of a game and the second 'a party of ballplayers.' " Block, "Early Baseball Bibliography", p. 212 Blue printed wrappers (dated 1850). Fine Illustrated.16 pp. 1 vols. 32mo (4-1/4 x 2-3/4 inches). Seller Inventory # 261402
