Reduced - Five Volume Set - 1963 Young Years Library - First Edition.

Now reduced from $75 to $60.

This is a special and fabulous first edition (1963) set of books edited by August Baker! You will find gem after gem--the stories and poems we all grew up with! Buy them for yourself or to read to your children or grandchildren. The set contains the following five books:

1. Best Loved Nursery Rhymes and Cradle Songs
2. Best Loved Nursery Stories, Verse and Fables
3. Best Loved Fairy Tales
4. Best Loved Stories and Poems
5. Mother's Guide to Children's Reading

The illustrations are so beautiful and varied that they could easily be sold individually for framing but I just didn't have the heart to destroy this treasure. This was especially true when I realized how rare this set is. I tried to locate another first edition set like this online but couldn't find any.

Note: If you get a chance, look up the Wikipedia entry about Augusta Baker, the woman who edited this marvelous collection!

Condition is very good. On two of the books, there is a bit of fraying at the top of the outside spine. Otherwise, no real wear, writing or other damage.
