  • Title:  Chatter, Stories, Pictures and Poems for the Little Folks
  • Written By: Anonymous
  • Copyright: 1891
  • Publisher:  De Wolfe, Fiske & Publishing Company, Boston
  • Binding: Hardcover
  • Condition:  Antique - Used.  Fair Antique Condition, considering it's 133 years old.  This is an EXTREMELY RARE book.  "Chatter" was introduced as a series by De Wolfe, Fiske & Co. in 1891, originally it was a 3-book series. In 1892 three more volumes were added, making it a 6 book set.  Chatter is the first book in the series.  It contains a treasury of children's stories, nursery rhymes, poems and more.  It has many black & white engraved illustrations.  The front board has a charming color illustration of 3 girls.  The cloth binding /spineback is fraying, faded and it's become separated from the pages.  There is LOTS of wear on the covers, the back is worse than the front, with lots of writing, scribbles, and scratches.  Pages are VERY yellowed, almost brown, (tanning) and there is an odor, but there's no mold or mildew.  There is writing in pencil on the very first page only, no torn pages or corners, (except on covers, already mentioned).  We never want to crease the books by fully opening them, this is why you'll notice the pictures are not always straight.  If you still need more information, we are happy to answer any questions and send additional pictures. Please review all pictures to further access condition, and make sure you love this item before purchasing, we can't accept returns.  All Sales Final.  Please remember these are ANTIQUE and VINTAGE items, they are NOT new, every effort has been made to show any scratches, wear and tear and imperfections.  This is a heavy book, (almost 2 lbs) before packaging.
  • Dimensions:  8.0 x 10.0 inches
