Beautiful antique childrens book titled "Boys", with Full-Page Color Plates after drawings by Emilie Benson Knipe and with stories and verses by Alice Calhoun Haines. Published in 1905. Book is in better than average condition and has heavy board paper pages with 4 full page color plates. Verses and stories have illustrated borders all around. Book measures 10" x 12" and has 30 pages included end pages. There are small tears to several of the pages near spine, no damage to illustrations. Verses and stories inlcuded The Little Brother, The Smallest Boy, Speed, TheLittle Boy and His Old Velocopide and more. These illustrations are wonderful and could be used for framing (although a shame to take this great book apart!) No writing or markings inside, back cover looks as it it may have had some pencil markings that have been gently erased. Front cover has soiling and scratches and some light pencil markings. Spine and binding is good.
