No date, but circa 1900-1910. Small quarto, color illustrated boards backed in red cloth: front cover depicts Santa Claus with a tree and toys on his back entering a door in a circle [looks like a vintage Christmas postcard], the rear board is in red only on ivory and depicts various fairy tales, illustrated endpapers, color frontispiece of Cinderella, all stories and poems with b/w illustrations. GOOD+ : boards are rubbed all around, corners open, boards pulling away from stapled binding but textblock and binding is still tight, pages have typical browning, owner name on first blank page otherwise clean throughout. Collectible for its cover which is in nice condition with only a few faint scratches. Scan available upon request.
