 Ark That Glue Built. Clara Williams/George Williams, ill. Stokes 1908/1908.

The Ark That Glue Built.

Magnificent pictures of the animals: constructing the ark, running toward it in a storm, drowning in the flood, sitting at dinner in the ark, playing, dancing, conferring with Noah, and racing off onto dry land two by two. Apparently done by a careful older child, so that the cutting of the black lines is not perfect and a few of the placements are debatable, but a wonderful piece and hard to find in this series.

Toy Animal ABC

22201 Kiddie's Number Book cloth

Kiddie's Number Book.

Mathematically very nice as it goes from 1 to 12. Also the pictures are gorgeous, with large natural looking farm animals with lots of character appearing in a woodland setting with black "sky" broken by large trees. This book appears as "New" in the McLoughlin 1927 list, and it was expensive in its time. Unfortunately, the good quality linen used in its construction, although it takes detailed lines and colour beautifully, tends to crease, making white lines. Louise Dorothea Tessin (Roats), (1894 - 1962) a California artist, illustrated children's books, activity books, and art education books for McLoughlin and Milton Bradley

22208 Let's Be Friends Peggy cloth

Let's Be Friends.

Actually all of these animals would appear on an ordinary farm except the monkey, but he seems right at home. On the back cover: "All these friends are good to you,/ Now let's see what YOU can do." Despite cloth book claims, washing removes the sizing and they don't iron well.

14317 The Animals' School-treat Clifton Bingham / Cecil Aldin

The Animals' School-Treat.

It was a lovely summer day/That Doctor Leo rose to say/"My pupils dress up nice and neat./And you shall have a grand school-treat" And off they all go in brakes and waggons for a day in the country! A treasure in any condition.

Cecil Aldin, the animal artist and humorist, builds on the wit of Bingham's verses. The animals' expressions are a delight. An early Ragbook produced with fine artwork and writing. Aldin, already an established illustrator, received 10 times the fee of any previous artist and went on to produce several wonderful rag books for Deans. (Cope)

22579 Child's First Alphabet Book

Child's First Alphabet Book

Two ABCs bound together with a memorable Rountree cover plate and many funny endpaper drawings by Lang Campbell, including Uncle Wiggily. Both alphabets have the look of thinner reproductions of prewar chromolithographs (which, if true, would have been Graham & Matlack.)

Bird and Animal ABC: Spreads of six or seven wonderful coloured illustrations of letters/animals in their habitats, followed by spreads with little drawings and information about animals in the same letter groups.

Nursery Rhyme Book ABC: More elaborate turn of the century style lithos, full illustrations with Frances Brundage style children, also with six or seven letters/rhymes followed by larger line drawings with green touches.

All in all a large book in nice condition. More images available.
