Original green cloth with some foxing on blank leaves and water stains on back cover. This is a delightful book for children, especially for those who say they hate school. Homer Fink is one of those kids who appears never to be listening, but when one gets his attention he spouts facts and figures to the amazement of everyone, including the teacher. The author, Homer's fellow student, relates: "I don't suppose it ever occurred to Homer Fink that other kids weren't as concerned about learning as he was. To tell the truth, I'm not interested in half the things Homer knows about. But I listen because sometimes Homer gets hot on a subject like the Second World War. I remember one afternoon he charted the battles of Coral Sea and Midway for me. Homer really had me believing he was right there with Admiral William Halsey. When Homer… Read More

Boston: Brown, Taggard, and Chase, 1858 Book. Illus. by Uncredited Woodcuts. Very Good. Decorative Cloth. 16mo - over 5¾" - 6¾" tall. Original blind-stamped red cloth on boards. No DJ. Gilt spine dec. and lettering. Cover shows four children dancing around a Maypole and elaborate floral corners. Back cover identical. This is from the first children's series, My Uncle Toby's Library, issued in 12 volumes by Reverend Wise in 1853. At least four more series followed. Somehow he found time to hold various pastorates (Methodist) from 1837-52, edit the Sunday-School Messenger from 1838-44, and write several books. He edited the Zion's Herald from 1852-56, then took on the editorship of all Methodist Sunday School publications. In 1860 he also became editor of the church's tract publications, and held these positions until 1872. This volume is enchanting from cover to cover. The front EPs extol the Rollo Series and Chandler's Paper Dolls, while the rear… Read More
