Fun lot of twelve (12) late 19th- early 20th century childrens booklets, all printed in chromolithography. Several are promotional give-aways of the era (Malena, etc.).

Profusion of charming colorful childhood images throughout, numerous advertisements, etc. many images would be frameable.

Condition varies but all shows signs of handling and age.Video captures condition far better than words.

Given the intended audience age range (children under say 10) and their inherent fragility as stapled paper booklets, all survivals should be treated as interesting artifacts of this 100 plus year old lost era in color printing and juvenile book production.

Most printed c. 1888-1910.
