"Little Pictures of Japan", illus. Katharine Sturges, The Book House for Children
The Book House for Children was founded in 1919, with author Beaupre Miller as both publisher and editor, and continued to produce editions of popular children's literature through 1940. The company was largely women-run and staffed. Art ran in Katharine Sturges's family—her husband was artist/writer Clayton Knight and her son was Hilary Knight, who illustrated the "Eloise" books.
The quarto format book measures 11" x 8" and 192 pages long. The brown cloth boards feature gilt lettering on the spine and front, where there is also an illustration of a Japanese girl petting a deer. Very good plus condition, with the pages slightly toned but clean and tight throughout, minor soiling to the front board, and bumping to the spine corners.
