Description
 
The clothes company shares a story that tells of a bunch boys getting into adventures and troubles. 10 pp. Self covers. Each little man gets a short, few line verse about their activities, like the first smoked his dad's cigar and got sick, or the second got lost at sea, and the fifth ate until he could not anymore. All eight of the boys are declared to be naughty. For each story about a boy there is an accompanying black and white illustration with red accents. On the back cover is a poem that describes the various products that H.M. Voorhees and Bros offered, like clothes for boys until fourteen, "ready-to-wear" clothing, and baby clothes. Note the number sequence of "merry little man" is not in the order of 1,2,3,4. It also states that this book is just a token of their appreciation and friendship. Staple booklet. Measures 7 3/4" 5 1/2"..
