This little primer, first copyrighted in 1891, is similar to the 1960s Dick and Jane books, but these are written as children's lives were back then with Victorian Era illustrations. The words it starts with are Mamma, baby and see. It progressively adds more words, in the middle of the book it gets to "Are you going to feed the cow, John?" In the back is a list of words and a guide to pronunciation.
It has 102 pages and is 7.25 X 5.5". The cover is hard covered in a maroon linen with gorgeous embossed designs in black. The edges of the cover are worn and the inside is somewhat yellowed but is good paper that is holding up well. The corners and edges are worn and there are edge rips on some pages. There is a persons name written in pencil on the inside cover.
Payment must be recieved prior to shipping. I fulfill your order within 3 business days of receiving your order M-F. If for some reason, I am unable to ship with in 3 business days, I will let you know so you can decide if it can wait, however, I strive never to do that. I do not usually work the weekend so if you order something Friday nite, it will most likely not ship until Monday.
I use standard shipping costs for different size items. In reality it may be more to ship or may be a little less. What you see is what you get & I believe my prices reflect that and are worth it. Whatever shipping cost is on the item is what you pay. With the cost of different boxes etc. it just makes sense to use a flat fee for certain items. I don't add the cost of mailing products to the item, I depend on my shipping costs to include that. I have had instances when my international shipping has been way off, and if that is the case, I do refund that part of the shipping cost. I insure EVERYTHING. That adds to the cost of shipping .

I am a fair and reasonable person. If something is damaged due to shipping, I will refund your money or allow you to exchange. If you don't like the item or it's not what you thought, you can send it back for refund or exchange but you will need to pay the shipping cost back to me. My vintage items are sold "as is". Please look at the pictures & descriptions carefully as I will not allow a return if the item is not acceptable for something I described as a flaw or issue.
