Sold: Denslow 1st Edn FAIRBANKS JUVENILE HISTORY OF THE UNITED STATES 1911 Fairy Soap Advertising Booklet


Out of stock


Here is an unusual Denslow item entitled “Fairbanks Juvenile History of the United States”, an advertising booklet for Fairy soap. Copyright 1911, 1st edition (the 1916 reprint appears to be more common). Charming, beautifully illustrated booklet with Denslow’s vibrant illustrations throughout, all in full color and signed with “Den” and his hippocampus symbol. Each vignette utilizes a bar a Fairy soap somewhere in the scene. Very clever, very Denslow! 5″ by 7″ softcover, 55 pages, complete.

Book is in good condition overall. The cover is detached from the bottom staples, still attached at the top, and has a corner fold and is a little dirty, esp on the back, which also has a corner chip. Internally very nice and clean, printing on thick stock with just a little age toning and a couple corner folds near end. I don’t think you’ll be disappointed in this scarce little book with its marvelous illustrations!
