  • Antique Children's Book, Happy Hours, Lothrop Publishing, 1899
  • Title:  Happy Hours with Merry Little People
  • Written By: Anonymous
  • Copyright: 1899
  • Publisher:  Lothrop Publishing Company, Boston
  • Binding: Hardcover
  • Condition:  Antique - Used.  Fair Antique Condition, considering it's 127 years old.  This is an EXTREMELY RARE book; it is part of the Happy Hours series by Lothrop Publishing starting in 1895 with "Sunny Days".  This one, "Happy Hours", is the 4th book, added to series in 1899.  This book contains a treasury of children's stories, nursery rhymes, poems and more.  It has many black & white engraved illustrations and one large color illustration on the frontispiece.  The front board has a wonderful color illustration with gilding, or what is called "Illuminated".  The cloth binding /spineback is fraying and it's become separated from the pages.  There is LOTS of wear on the covers.  Pages are very yellowed/tanning and there is an odor, but there's no mold or mildew.  There is no writing, 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.  This one was particularly fragile and we're not experts on handling antique books so we didn't force it open.  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.  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. All Sales Final. This is a heavy book, (almost 2 lbs) before packaging.
  • Dimensions:  8.25 x 10.5 inches
