Here is a lovely little lot of 3 vintage children's books from the 1930s-40s.
"Famous Rabbit Stories" is copyrighted 1944, by John Sherman Bagg, and includes four short stories:
The Little Rabbit That Would Not Eat
Tale of Peter Rabbit
Tiny Hare and The Windball
The Hare and The Tortoise
Throughout the book are several very sweet 3-color illustrations by Mary and Wallace Stover. The cover is soiled with some nibbles along the bottom edge, and the pages are deeply tanned. The book is free from any pencil or crayon markings & the like, and the pages are all intact & secure in the binding.
Now the other two books aren't really story books -- they are 1930s era activity books...the kind that had colorful pictures that could be cut-out and stuck to the page to make, as one book says "neat and interesting pictures in full colors". I daresay there aren't too many of these that have survived. The pictures are all so quaint and cute...I think they would be great for craft purposes or for framing.
The Beginners Scissors Book, Pictures without Paste was published by Saml. Gabriel Sons & Company in New York, illustrated by Winifred B Reninger. This book has four completed pictures in it, titled How is Everyone, Meeting in the Park, The Hungry Chicks, and Tea for Two. The pages measure 8.5" x 11". This one is nice and clean except for some finger smudges, mostly on the first page.
Stick'Em Animal Cutouts is copyrighted 1939 by The Platt & Munk Co.. There are four pictures, titled Good morning everybody, here we go, off to the circus, It's fun to have a picnic in the country, and Whee! it's fun to swing high up in the air. Really only the last picture is suitable for framing ; the others would be more appropriate for crafts or inspiration since the youngster wasn't very skilled at cutting out the pictures. The cover page is soiled around the edges, but other than that the book is in good condition. The pages measure 9" x 11".
