Best in Children's Books were published by Nelson Doubleday, Inc. as part of a book club which ran from 1957 until the late 1960's.  These editions contain both fiction and nonfiction stories & always included information on a different country.  Their gorgeous spines and covers make them a popular set for collectors.  Each cover and spine is embossed and contains illustrations taken from within the pages of the edition.
