A word about this book from the seller.
This book contains no Christmas stories nor stories about Santa Claus. The subject of the stories
is diverse, but definitely not holiday themed. Presumably, the book was meant to be a holiday gift
for a child. It should be noted that some of the contents are a bit dark and graphic and may not
be suitable for impressionable children of this century. Parental guidance is suggested.

Copyright 1899.

McLoughlin Bros, New York.

Hard cover with cloth binding.

Book measures approximately 8.25 by 10.25 inches wide by high.
Unnumbered pages. 136 pages of printing.

Needs Repair - Read Copy.
Numerous issues that affect the collectability of this book but not the readability.
Covers and cloth binding attached together, but no longer attached to the book.
Considerable wear and heavy soiling on the covers. Front leaf is not attached and
