All About Teeny Weeny Feet, Gaskell, 1908

"All About Teeny Weeny Feet" or "A Doll from Japan" was written by Harvey Gaskell and illustrated by M.E. Thompson and H.M. Pemberton and published by Cupples and Leon, New York, in 1908. The little 4-3/8" x 5-1/2" book tells the story of the arrival of Miss Betty Blue's birthday present, "O'Kissme San", a little doll from Japan with her tiny maid, and their adventures at the seashore. They avoid the clutches of a crab, being upset in a rickshaw, and being swept out to sea before meeting handsome Captain Ban at a seashore tea party, and getting married in front of all the other dollies. Between the wee chrysanthemum floral endpapers among the 48 pages of text and black and white illustrations are 10 pages of full color pictures, delighting everyone from tot to appreciative grown-ups. With no tears, marks or repairs, book is in excellent condition in its original plain glassine dust cover(cover has a few tiny chips on edges). Inscribed in pencil on first fly leaf is, "Happy christmas to Mary from your playmate. Lela". Next page is printed, "Dedicated to the Nicest Child in the Whole World" with "Mary McCormick" printed in pencil. This is a darling children's book about dolls, and would be perfect for your dolly's library as well as your own! Thank you for stopping by.
