Up to Mischief.

New York: McLoughlin, (1898) Pansy Series; SOFTCOVER, advertising booklet, cover illustrations shows mother cat coming in the pantry door and surprising her kitten who is eating preserves out of a crock with a spoon, quality chromolithos on cover and 4 pages, glazed paper, sepia drawings in text, 5.75x5.25", 10 interior pages. Toploader small softcover advertizing.

Amusing poems about animals, all original except Hey diddle diddle and Hark, hark, the dogs. Lovely chromos. A drawing by William Foster of two frightened pussycats being rowed by a puffin gentleman. Unusual for McLoughlin to advertise any products but their own, and this ad is quite a dramatic essay. "...The yeast, the weather, the girl, in fact everything goes wrong with bad bread about the house. All this can be avoided by using VIENNA. FLOUR." Terrible condition, but a rare little gem that should be preserved.

CONDITION: Fair; no names or other marks but pages are very wrinkled and dirty with half inch margin tear running through the book and creased bottom corner on most of it. Item #21850
