Length:  320 Pages, 384 Pages, and 320 Pages
Dimensions: 5.75" wide by 8.5" tall
Condition:  These three volumes show cover and spine wear due to age and use over the years.  There are bookplates in the inside covers of all three volumes   No page tears or missing pages noted. Volume one has been the most well-loved in this set.  There is a tear on the inside cover which makes the binding seem less stable.  It is still tightly bound.  The spines show wear from years of use.

Originally meant to be published as one volume, this set ended up in three volumes because the editor wanted to include “the best reading for children of all ages, and because I wanted to give you the whole stories or whom chapters from books just as the famous authors wrote them…”

A few authors included:  Mother Goose, Clement C. Moore, Hans Christian Andersen, A. A. Milne, Robert Lawson, William Shakespeare, Lewis Carroll, Robert Louis Stevenson & so many more.
