  • Antique Children's Book, Mischief and Play, W.B. Conkey Co, 1899
  • Title:  Mischief and Play Laughable Stories
  • Written By: No author given
  • Copyright: 1899
  • Publisher:  W. B. Conkey Company, Chicago
  • Binding: Hardcover
  • Condition:  Antique - Used.  Fair Antique Condition, considering it's 125 years old. This is an EXTREMELY RARE book.  This book contains a treasury of children's stories. W. B. Conkey publishers introduced many children series books, the majority of those published in the 19th century, like this one, are oversized board books.  This one has many black & white engraved illustrations and one large color illustration on the frontispiece.  The front board has a charming color illustration with gilding, or what is called "Illuminated".  The cloth binding /spineback is faded and very worn.  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 writing in pencil, only on the very first page, 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:  7.5 x 10.25 inches
