Description
 
An advertising booklet for the 5 book series entitled 'My Book House", edited by Olive Beaupre Miller. The five books in the series were entitled: 'Into the Nursery', 'Up One Pair of Stairs', 'Through Fairy Halls', 'The Treasure Chest', and 'From the Tower Window'. The series was a selection of the "best available stories and poems for children up to the age of fourteen, graded according to age and illustrated with remarkable beauty." This booklet features an excerpt from each of the five books in the series with several illustrations from each book as well. At the end of the booklet there is information on how to purchase the series along with the advertising phrase: "My Bookhouse Makes its Appeal to Childhood Because Into it is Woven the Spirit of Childhood." The cover has a small intact tear at the binding, along with a small missing piece along the bottom edge. So of the colored ink used in the illustrations have stained the opposite page.
