Who doesn't LOVE mermaids, elves, and fairies?

These two small pages are from a precious little booklet called Fairy Tales printed in 1898, compliments of the N.K Fairbank Company in Chicago.

The illustrations were to advertise their soap products and have little ones imagine themselves in all the adventures of the tales.

The mermaids are incredibly charming and the little woodland scene is lovely.

This booklet was a "breaker" with all of its pages loose from the binding. It had been read and handled, but still retained its sweetness and is lovely. There are slight "waves" in part of the mermaid print and a corner has a paper break, but is still intact. Please see the scans to note both loveliness and condition issue.
4.5" x 7"

We pack very carefully! No musty or stale odor whatsoever.

These vintage lithographed prints will be sent backed with an acid-free board to keep them flat and in a clear archival sleeve to protect them inside the outer packing. 

Since there are different costs to ship different items depending on weight, etc., we feel the fairest thing to do for everyone is to quote combinations as they are requested.

We do everything possible to describe each item as carefully as possible and provide images to show things in great detail. Our policy has always been to sell "as is", but including full details as to any condition problems. Since grading systems for condition are so subjective, it feels too difficult to do otherwise. The prices are always based on that idea; if it were completely perfect, it might be considerably more costly. I am always happy to answer any questions via e-mail.

We'll definitely combine for shipping savings!
