Chatterbox Book, 1889
This is a beautiful issue from 1889 of the children's book Chatterbox. It was published by Estes and Lauriat of Boston. It is in excellent condition with all 412 pages intact with no tears or markings. It has the one color chromolithograph print at the front of the book opposite the title page. This one is titled "My Big Brother". The book is full of black and white drawings illustrating the various stories and poems and songs in the book. It has stories that are very realistic of the life of the times. There are several ads listed on the front endpages and the back cover. It has a light brown cloth binding the spine and picture covered hardboard covers. There is some corner and edge wear but the book is complete without any real damage as a broken spine or missing pages. The endpages have some torn areas in several places at the spine. A very rare children's book from 1889. The book is now in a Mylar covering to prevent and future wear.
