Description

All four are Tell a Tales books. Published by Whitman Publishing Co., Racine, Wis.

Matilda MacElroy and Mary by Jessie Home Fairweather, 1950
Edge and surface wear on cover.

Train Coming!, by Betty Ren Wright, 1954.
Much loved and read book with lots of paper missing from spine.

Mr. Jolly by Jane Mathison, 1948
Book in good shape. A few chips on cover's edge.

Animal ABC by Harriett 1949
Some wrinkling on lower cover, probably due to dampness. Pages yellowed.

Adorable pictures!
ALL books have a vintage smell that indicates they were stored in a garage for many years.

Pictures and covers could be re-purposed for crafting, collage or other fabrication!

If you are only interested in only one or two books let me know!
