Extra nice children’s book – “The Little Book of Colors” by Helen Dean Fish and Catharine Smith! It has copyright date of 1944, J.B. Lippincott Company, and is a First Edition. The first page states “THIS BOOK IS DESIGNED TO HELP VERY LITTLE CHILDREN LEARN THE SIX RAINBOW COLORS”. The only “use” evidence is some coloring on the pages that are supposed to be colored (things that are red, things that are green, etc). Neat book!
I purchased this little booklet several years ago at an estate sale. It's an advertising booklet for Old Reliable Coffee and it has amusing and charming little verses on each page that extol the virtues of cleanliness for good health. There are 10 pages with verses, 2 pages “Coffee as it Grows” and the back page is about Old Reliable Coffee. Booklet is in very good condition with some storage/use evidence on cover. This is a neat collectible and advertising item!
This listing has a 1950’s edition of “Mrs. Wiggs of the Cabbage Patch”! Book was written by Alice Hegan Rice, illustrated by Everett Shinn, and published by Grosset & Dunlap, New York. It is in very good condition with age yellowing of pages and prior owner wrote his name on cover page.
