Antique Children's Book Night Before Christmas Mclaughlin Ca. 1900 Santa Claus For Sale
Nice old children's book with terrific illustrations from McLaughlin publisher; unclear about the date--probably was dated on front cover at bottom right where publisher's name is--but torn there & unreadable if indeed it was there. Presume it's about 1900-1910, based on similar books I've had (two are listed elsewhere right now). It's marked "Linen," and is printed on linen--covers are cardboard and thus fared worse than the inside of the book. Overall condition is fair--covers torn & wrinkled; pages have loose threads from the linen; spots here and there on the pages (14 pages; 4 full-page color illustrations some spotting on those as well, but primarily on the edges & not seriously affecting the images). Great addition to a collection of old children's books & a relatively rare find. Book measures approximately 9" X 10 3/4 inches. I'm starting at 99 cents, as I often do--maybe a really nice book at a really nice price. Thanks for looking & maybe offerding!
