Little Froggie Green.
Published 1908, Akron, Ohio by the Saalfield Publishing Company.
16 pages counting pictorial covers. Cardboard pages.
Publisher's color lithographed cardboard frog shaped book.
This fairly fragile large early 20th century juvenile cardboard book now over 110 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not a new re-issue or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, spine paper cracked so covers are almost loose (held in one spot near top with piece of removable archival tape), remains overall quite attractive as an object.
Text block paper is gently uniformly age toned, but internally still fresh, clean, well preserved and tight. Pretty nice considering the material used and the intended audience.
Still attractive on the shelf. Book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this antique book survives.
Book Measures c. 10 3/4" H x 5 3/4" W.
