Description

Beautiful chromolithographed antique children's book titled "Pets" in overall good condition copyrighted in 1917 Akron, Ohio, by The Saalfield Publishing Company, NY. The book is lightly worn on the top cover showing a calf and the back cover is in better condition with a small dog wearing a bonnet. Overall size is 8.5" X 10". This book is simply darling!

There are ten separate pages inside (including the opposite side of the front and back covers) featuring a child's pets and barnyard animals with an accompanying rhyme on each page. Some of them are chromolithographed ( a total of four) while the remainder are in in black and white. The horse and kitten as well as kitten with a puppy are gorgeous in color as they have been kept out of direct light. The front and back cover are also bright with primary colors such as red, yellow and green. The book is held together with two staples. The paper stock has an overall yellowed hue that can be seen in the background of the interior pages pictured.

This would be gorgeous simply framed for a child's room or in a Victorian / Edwardian home. If one wished to remove the staples and use the chromolithographed interior pages the resulting artwork would be fresh and stunning! (Although Edith and sometimes Mable aren't a fan of parting out something as intact and beautiful as this child's picture book with rhymes. Then again if you purchased it you may do as you wish!)

If there are any questions as to the other pages inside as always please contact us and we will supply more information.
