Condition: 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.

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 an... View more info

Seller ID: 3254

Condition: Fine condition


This is both pretty and wise, a gem to keep for yourself, or a gift for someone else. It's not a desk calendar, but a book of days which is divided into the four seasons. There's beautiful art in full color, classic poetry, snips from the text of classic books, recipes, and places to write your thoughts, your favorite things, and your memories. It has not been used and is clean and bright, as is the slipcase. The only minor thing is a pretty unused bookplate affixed to front paste down. The book measures 6-1/2" x 8-1/2".

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 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 transl...

Seller ID: 4042

I love Peter Pauper books. I once saw at a bookstore near Dayton,Ohio every book the company published, buyer takes all. I get one of them here, I get one there, but I'm happy when I get any.This one is odd insofar that it has no date and no publishing information. The book doesn't have illustrations, but it's quite lovely and would make a nice gift. The book and the case measure 6" x 9-1/2" and have 127 pages. The only fault is sunning to spine and around the edges of the case. (Gift Box 3) View more info

Attractive cookbook all by itself, but I do love a book in a box, so of course this one flew right into my hand. It's spiral bound with no sign of covers pulling away.

Condition: Fine in Fine Box


Book is clean and without defect. It also retains its original box which is likewise pristine. The book is written in both Chinese and English, each page unfolding the elegant and graceful tea culture in both languages. The art is lovely and is seen on each page. But perhaps the most interesting are the Chinese postal stamps which echo the tea culture theme. They appear to be under plastic, but you can open them up and hold them and put them back. There are a total of eight. Book measures 7-1/2" x 10-1/2 with 24 pages. Book is easily put back into the box. Would make a very charming gift. View more info
