"Tales Told in Holland", a My Book House Travelship book first edition, 1926. Edited by Olive Beaupre Miller and illustrated by Maud and Miska Petersham. 11 1/4" x 8 1/2", hardcover, 191 pages.
The book includes wonderful stories, folk tales,poems and nursery rhymes, but the illustrations are the most delightful part. Most are done in a softly colored deco woodblock style.
My Travelship included three books; Tales Told in Holland, Nursery Rhymes from France and Little Pictures of Japan.
This book shows some water damage, which I have shown in the photos. Most of the interior and nearly all the illustrations are untouched. The damage must have occurred long ago, as there are no odors or mildew. I see no writing, torn or missing pages.
