20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
1 20 Play Books Saalfield Artcraft (1953)
Akron. Ohio Saalfield Publishing 1953 soft cover in original box Very good condition 
I grew up in Akron, Ohio home of the old and beloved Saalfield Publishing Company. The company was known for books in boxes such as this one and also its licensing for Shirley Temple books. Saalfield had novels too for older kids, so we never grew out of them until we weren't kids anymore. This particular box is new to me, but I would have loved it.The box says it contains 20 playbooks for drawing, coloring, picture hunts, riddles, connect the dots, games and mazes. Twenty it may have been, but it ended up housing 22 -- no repeats and no coloring. Fun gift! Measures 6" x 9". Books are clean and bright and box is sturdy. One corner is neatly repaired with brown tape.

Shanghai Shanghai People's Fine Arts Publishing House 1996 7532216462 / 9787532216468 Presumed First Soft covers Fine books and VG Box 
I bought this last night at a book and paper sale -- what a surprise! I have been going to this place for 20 years and never have I seen any any Asian items I can recall. The box is covered with blue cloth and is clean and sturdy. Inside are two stacks of small comic books, ten on each side.The text is in Chinese, but the black and white drawings tell a story too. The little books measure 3-1/2" x 5". I was able to translate much, but the same exact specific item was used in every translation site which was a problem because two books are missing from that one. Mine has ALL TWENTY. The translated ones are:Dragon Palace I; Dragon Palace II; Two Mountains; Gao Laozhuang; Quicksand; White Tiger; True Hawk; Red Baby; Tongtian River; Golden Pocket; True Monkey Ling; Flaming Mountain; Fake West; Pirates of the Caribbean; Lion Camel; No Bottom Hole; Battle of Qinglongshen; and Retrieve the Scriptures. As stated the little booklets are clean and attractive, as is the box which has only a grey spot to the title box on the outside. A very nice collectible.

Violets From Lowell (Gift Book in Original Box 1912)
11 Violets From Lowell (Gift Book in Original Box 1912)
New York Cupples & Leon 1912 Padded Boards Fine in Good Box 
Oh, how I love old gift books, but when I get one in its original box I have to work to remain dignified! This one is beautiful and was clearly kept as a treasure. The theme of course is the poems of John Russell Lowell paired with that of violets. Together they are totally charming. This one was given as a Christmas gift in 1912 and is recorded as such on the reverse of the front free endpaper. The hard cover boards are a padded faux leather which is pristine, as are the book pages. The box is soiled a bit and lightly worn, but the gem inside is a beauty. Art is brightly colored and plentiful. Pages are numbered, but I counted 23 with content.

To Everything There Is A Season:  Writings That Celebrates Life's Joys (1979), Oda, Stephanie C.
19 Oda, Stephanie C. To Everything There Is A Season: Writings That Celebrates Life's Joys (1979)
Norwalk, Connecticut R. C. Gibson Co. 1979 Hard cover Fine condition 
I doubt very much that this book was ever used -- it's pristine inside and out. I have it listed in the books in boxes category, but it's actually in just half a box. The top was made of plastic which had pieces missing from the front edge. After I almost cut my finger on it into the trash it went. The bottom section is perfect though and will help keep the book as nice as it is now. The contents are all about uplifting thought and the contributors are so diverse it's amazing. Here's some examples: Marcus Arelius, Martin Luther, Martin Luther King Jr., Judith Viorst, Eleanor Wylie, Thomas Jefferson, Hubert Humphrey, Jesse Stuart, Thomas Jefferson, Robert Frost, Bing Crosy and Doris Day! Book measures 6" x 8" and would make a lovely gift.
