Schnick Schnack; Trifles for Little Ones.

Engaging coloured pictures, observations of the mischievous, pretty children of prosperous families. Frontis and title pages have borders of foxgloves, harebells, daffodils and vines.Very difficult to choose just a few pictures; there are more! Poems probably in-house rather than translations of the German.

20069 The Night Before Christmas von Hofsten.

The Night Before Christmas.

Von Hofsten's illustrations show the old-fashioned tiny Santa, who fits the chimney well. The title poem is laid out on four pages; most of the other poems, of varying length, are Christmas poems. Definitely the later Pleasant Hour version. The book was given to Ruth Van Doren; laid in is her charming 3rd grade handwritten assignment on The Oyster, in careful cursive written with a straight pen in ink, and also her stencil of an apple, this in Fine condition. Note: This Book Has Been Sold.
