This is a great vintage children's book by Charles Kingsley entitled The Water Babies - A Fairy Tale for a Land Baby, published and illustrated by those wonderful illustrators at McLoughlin Brothers of New York. It is a hardcover volume with 128 numbered pages and illustrated throughout in black and white and a fabulous color illustration in the front. It is in good condition with clean, tight pages and a strong binding. There pages have some age yellowing, but are free from tears or writing, with the exception of the name inside the front. There is some light foxing, but the book retains its original paper dust jacket, which has minor wear and two small holes on the front and some spine wear at the bottom. The cover has a little wear, but overall, considering the age - 1920s - 1930s, this book is in nice shape for a children's book.
