Ordering Information

c1910 – BOYS AND GIRLS CHRISTMAS BOOK
PERFECT HOLIDAY DECORATION PIECE

“Bright and Cheerful Stories for the Young People” – The Fireside Series published by Hurst & Company, New York. No date, unpaginated, and I did not count the pages since the pages are brittle.. Hardcover book measures about 7 3/4 inches by about 10 3/8 inches. IMPORTANT NOTE — This book was printed on acidic and extremely brittle paper – in fact the first few pages are detached, and others exhibit tears and wear. Not really something to sit and read without further degradation. The redeeming value (and the collectibility of this book) is the cheerful illustration on the front board, and the colorful frontispiece. Internal illustrations are Black and White. Wear to the boards, but for display in your holiday decorations, or under you tree, this is a nice addition, and any title in this Hurst series is extremely uncommon – thus the price (still a bargain).

PRICE — $22.50
