Two (2) Trivia and General Knowledge Books Advertising "The Book of Knowledge" to Children

New York, NY: The Grolier Society, c.1954. Two publications "keyed to the 1954 edition of The Book of Knowledge", advertising the children's encyclopedia directly to children. The encyclopedia set was first published by the Grolier Society in 1912, and went through many editions well into the 1960s. The present publications contain courses of study and trivia for children, with corresponding volume and page numbers, so the child can only find out the answer if they buy the set. Self-learning is encouraged, and the publications provide excellent insight into current curriculums given to children at this time. They include:

"Graded Courses of Study: The Book of Knowledge". New York: The Grolier Society, c.1954. Single vol. (9.5" by 6.5"), pp. 124, original printed salmon pink wrps.

"School-Subject Guide to The Book of Knowledge". New York: The Grolier Society, c.1954. Single vol. (9.5" by 6.5"), pp. 127, [1], original printed salmon pink wrps with illus. at top and bottom. Good. Dust soiling, upper wrapper and first leaf detached form one vol., lower wrapper lacking. Short tears, including one larger tear to second vol.
