Illustrated in bright colors in typical turn of the century style. Includes a man catching a baseball, a boy scout catching a butterfly, a mule kicking a stertypical Black man and more. About the illustrator and the importance of this work, the following is an excerpt from The World Encyclopedia of Cartooning: "Baker, Alfred Zantzinger (1870-1933) [was] an American cartoonist born in Baltimore, Maryland_ . Baker pursued seriously art and was exhibited at age 23 in the National Academy_he joined the staff of Puck in 1898. As a cartoonist he did not confine his work to one outlet, and at the turn of the century Baker was appearing frequently in the pages of Puck, Judge, Life, Scribner's, Harper's, Century and St. Nicholas. His books include The Moving Picture Book (1911), The Moving Picture Glue Book (1912) and The Torn Book (1913). His innovations, such as die-cutting and 3-D drawings with glasses, are surpassed in the children's book genre only by those of the imaginative Peter Newell. Baker's work was among the freshest and cleverest of American cartooning at the turn of the century, and retains these characteristic even under modern scrutiny." Rare.
