20976 Adventures with Elsie by Hamilton.

Adventures with Elsie, the Famous Cow.

The cartoon of the original Elsie, a Jersey heifer, grew to become one of the most recognized advertising icons in the US and Canada and is still used, though Borden's ceased doing business in the 1990's. Elsie's work went way beyond advertising, and so this book, written on the 25th anniversary of her first World's Fair appearance, is a short social history of the World War Two years and beyond, War Bonds, Travel, Freedomland, a second World's Fair, family, and more. The author drew on several private collections and the Borden records to find the many photos in this book.  Note: This book has been sold.

The Cow and the Silver Cream illus by Vernon Grant.

The Cow and the Silver Cream.

This story really happened! In 1873 John A. Wright stopped to rescue a cow; later he noticed that the mud on a cow's legs had turned white and took some home to experiment with. A great fable, brought to life with Grant's clever illustrations, about our very favourite silver polish. These little booklets were distributed by stores, and this one has the printed address of Rudy's Meat Market in Portland Maine.
