New York: John H. Eggers for the Philadelphia Bulletin, 1922. Four miniature books, first editons. 2 1/8" x 2 7/8", 8 pp. in color illustrated wraps. Color illustration by Harrison Cady. Probably intended for inclusion in a small binder as there are two punch holes on the spine edges . Rear covers are adverts that rear " A New Bedtime Story similar to this one appears every evening in The Bulletin, Philadelphia" All in fine, bright condition with the exception of "Unc' Billy" which has a small stain on the front cover. Quite scarce, we are unsure as to the number of these that were issued; there is an ad for Burgess' "Quaddy Books" inside of the front covers but it does not include these titles but rather the full books. First edition thus. fine.
