21555 12 Mother Goose pamphlets, Jessie Willcox Smith/Colgate.

12 Jessie Willcox Smith Mother Goose Melodies advertising booklets.

Beautiful little booklets on high quality paper with pictures from the large Willcox Mother Goose book. These appeared the same year as a promo ad, according to Nudelman. These twelve titles, not the later four booklets, originally appeared in a plain card box with a little boxed tube of Colgate's Ribbon Dental cream: we'll include a photo but, unfortunately, not the box. They will be sent in a commercial black cloth box for safekeeping.
