Watty Piper Books and More….

 

As most of you know, I love vintage children’s books because of the illustrations….I recently saw this book on Ebay and was amazed by the graphics!!!!

This was described as an original 1846 publishing…I think that is incredible!  It is in such good condition and I only paid $15.00 for it!

These are great children’s books to have in your library for your grandkids also, just beautiful books from an era that was so prolific in wonderful graphics!

I also received a wonderful box from Miss E….

I, too, grew up with The Bumper Book. My son has the one from my childhood, but he keeps it stored away for safekeeping. I wish he would share it with his kids. Perhaps I'll look for another one on ebay. Thanks for the memories!

Oh Sandy! These books are wonderful! Do you think Meri could scan the alphabet letters for us? How cute would they be in our paper art!
