Sold: 1916 Reilly & Britton Advertising Flyer “Good Books for Boys and Girls”


Out of stock


Original Reilly & Britton advertising flyer: “A Selected List of Good Books for Boys and Girls”. The four-panel folding flyer lists L Frank Baum’s Aunt Jane’s series as well as the Mary Louise series to Mary Louise in the Country, which dates it to about 1916. Of the Mary Louise series it says: “Standard novel size. Illustrated. Pictorial jacket in color. Per volume, 60 cents”.

Also with pages on the Camp Fire Birls series and “boys’” books such as Boy Scouts of the Air and The Airship Boys series. Wonderful for the Oz bibliographer or scholar.

Unfolded size is 6.5”x14”. Condition is nice overall but there are some brown streaks on the cover. Scarce; the first I have seen.
