Vintage Children's Books, Classics To Grow On, 18 volumes, Sold Separately (Or Buy Whole Set for a Discount, while still available.) 1936-1960 In Great condition for age. Orange and Black
Parents' Institute, Inc., Publishers of Parents' Magazine

A lovely set of books for children with orange cloth cover with black and gold spines and black letter on front. Inside are clean and bright. Tight binding with no writing inside -- a huge rarity in vintage children's books. Some of the older books have lost the gold lettering on the spine. I indicate below, which ones have the faded spine. Covers are in excellent condition. They look like they were never read. See pictures for more evidence of condition.

These would look great on a bookshelf of a children's room as a group or individually. While still available, I will sell the entire group at a discount price. Or you can buy books individually.

Together, they measure 20" Length and 8-1/4 Height
