Children's Books- Juvenile books of the 19th-early 20th century.

Lot of ten (10) interesting old juvenile books, all in original publisher's cloth with spines gilt lettered and decorated. All display some signs of age and handling, nothing offensive. Some rubbing, corner wear, some spine ends chipped or frayed, some hinges cracked, a couple slightly shaken with loosened signatures, etc. But all remain sound.

Attractive and appealing on the shelf, nice looking lot of old books. Nicer than typical assortment, two with outstanding artistic pictorial spines including the head of Medusa.
