"The Babes in the Balloon and Other Stories", was published by Perkinpine and Higgins in 1870. This antique childrens book is part of the Snow-Drop Library and features eleven stories. Some of the stories are illustrated with nice line drawings.
This small antique book measures 6 1/4" x 4 1/4" and features a green embossed cover with a gilded spine. It is in good/fair condition with some fraying at the top and bottom of the outside spine and bumping at the covers' corners. The binding has some give to it but is fully intact. The pages are yellowed as would be expected of a book of this age. There is also some light foxing and smudging on several pages including the title page.
A fun antique book.
