Of all the illustrations in this very old book, this one has the most complete story and the richest detail. A little girl leans out a window to watch a bird building a nest. Inside the house, we see a mother with a baby, and outside, two boys walking past. The delicate coloring and period perfect styling of the artwork make this a rare and rich representation of a more genteel time. The text included is one page of a lesson that starts " I can see a nest in a tree."

These pages are the real thing- not photo copies or digital files. They were rescued from a very damaged book- "The Laurel Primer, published in 1917. The book had no cover, and several pages were missing, but those that remain are amazing examples of illustration art in the start of 1900s. The pages are yellowed from age, but only show slight wear, unless noted. Though the text has a tiny rip on the right hand bottom, I think it would be covered with any matting used. Each page measures 5 3/4" X 7 1/2", and includes the full page, not just what was cut from the binding. This gives you a little extra when matting. These items will come shipped encased in a heavier poster board for protection.

As always, I will only charge you the actual price of shipping, so if you combine purchases or I have over quoted, I will refund you the difference back to your PayPal account.
