The Jolly Book or Nelson's Children's Annual, Fourth Year, with 320 pages, 30 of which are color plates. There are also black and white sketches throughout the book, almost on every page. Color plates are on coated paper while the rest of the pages are pulp. Illustrations are by several artists some of the names that I can make out are Malcolm Patterson, E.F. Skinner, Edwin Noble, R. Hope, Anne Anderson, Norman Little, and there are others but they are difficult to make out.

This is a hard cover 8" x 10", story book with poems, stories, fairy tales, riddles and so forth. See photo #5 for the Table of Contents. There is no date on the title page but the Norman Little color plates are dated 1911. Origin of book not noted but was either published in England or at the New York branch. There was a book mark of a British flag cut from a magazine so I'm assuming that the original child owner lived in the UK. I will leave the book mark in the book.

Book is complete with no missing or loose pages. Boards show edge, corner and all around shelf wear. Paper pastedown on front cover shows some chipping around the edges, a couple of peels, some stains and soil as pictured. Back Cover generally the same with some scrapes. Red Spine shows wear, spots and fraying. Binding is decent with no pages being loose. Book opens flat in places and is wobbly. Interior is generally clean with some minor foxing to a few pages and some fingerprint smudges. There are a few closed edge tears and pages are generally age toned. There are no unpleasant tobacco caused or mildew related odors.
