To illustrate the scarcity of this book, I could find none on Book Finders or Worldcat. This could possibly be due to the fact that the quality of the paper used was so poor not many issues survived. This could have added to the rarity of this book. Conkey Company is stated on the title page. It was published by W.This book is a collection of "Pictures, Stories, and Rhymes for the Merry Little Folks, that Brighten Our Homes and Sweeten Our Lives". It is beautifully illustrated although many pictures have been colored in by a previous owner. The overall condition of the book is fair with worn edges, corners of the front and back covers.
The front cover has a tear and fold, and is missing part of the front illustrated covering, as can be seen in the photos. The spine covering is wearing away at the top and bottom of the spine.
The front hinge is weakening, but still opens and closes fine. The pages are tanning, browning, light foxing, many illustrations are colored in with crayon and some of the pages are loose. The pages are not numbered.In spite of the quality of this book, it would make a wonderful addition to any collection. Thank you for considering this very rare Santa Claus book!
