Lot x 4 Slater's Toy Books.
Published c. 1840's-50's, New York by Toy Book Repository,
4 books, each c. 8 pages. Text in English. Illustrated throughout with woodcut plates.

Publisher's pictorial paper wrappers, spine neatly hand sewn using thread (done by an early owner). Titles included in this lot: History of Little Red Riding Hood, Diamonds and Toads, Hansel and Grettel or the Enchanted Fawn, Jack the Giant Killer.

Scarce pre 1860 juvenile American chap book lot. An early owner has carefully used thread to stitch the spines in a manner frequently seen on small chap books of this vintage. This early hand repair adds a particular charm to the items in the lot.

Lot is over 150 years old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.

Bindings age worn, typical signs of handling from young hands, but nothing offensive or severe, lot remains overall attractive as an object.

Paper is gently toned, various typical small spots, stains, etc., still sound and agreeable given the small size, fragile nature, date and intended audience.

Still attractive on the shelf, it displays a pleasing and unique age patina, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive. 

Please review photos for more detail showing how this rare little item survives. The asking price reflects the condition based on our examination and 35+ years full time exposure to antiquarian books and ephemera of all types. Flaws seen and described have been taken into account.

Book Measures c. 6" H x 3 3/4" W.
