The Child's Black Beauty: rewritten for children.

New York: Charles E. Graham & Co., Mother Goose Booklet Series #0901 Newark, NJ: Charles E. Graham & Co., Childland Booklet Series 0903, [191?], paper covered boards with landscape in greens and pinks with framed printed picture of Black Beau. Small hardback.

Really nice colored illustrations. The cover illustration, repeated within, seems to be from the John Beer drawing of Jarrold's 5th edition, a lovely drawing of a horse, widely used in republications. It is difficult to date these Graham booklet series without owner inscriptions, but this date seems to be the consensus for the Mother Goose series; background on the front is the same as the Childland series, on the back different.

CONDITION: Fair; erased name fep; spine chipped off, loosening, 1" at top detached, crease across bottom board from being bent, pages are flat and clean. Item #21648

Price: $15.00
