How strange to find a second set of these fabulous Childcraft books just a few weeks after I sold the last set – although that often seems to happen? I bought this set from the person who owned them as a child – he was super proud of the set, and told me that he had read all of the books from cover to cover! Clearly he looked after them though becasuse the only real sign of wear is a bit of warping to some of the pages, and his name written in the front of volume 13*! And he clearly was impassioned about these books because someone added to his collection by buying him the Childcraft Picture Atlas and Dictionary too! Plus he kept them in this little table-top book stand. It’s not the most attractive of stands, but at least it does a decent job of looking after the books.
A great set full of wonderful illustrations and stories!
* Note: The Dictionary & Atlas are a bit more worn
