5 Children's Titles from the Stecher Lithography Company of Rochester, NY
by Margaret Evans Price, Anna Lauer, Isabel C. Byrum
Rochester: Stecher Lithography Co, 1919. Original wraps. Very Good +. Margaret Evans Price. 5 wonderful samples of early 20th century chromolithography in children's books. All 5 are part of a larger series issued by Stecher Lithography Co. of Rochester, NY and all showcase the company's vivid color lithography very powerfully. All 5 are also beautifully illustrated by in-house artist Margaret Evans Price. The 5 titles are "Mother Goose Book of Rhymes", "The Manger Babe" (by Isabel C. Byrum), "Baby, Animals and Birds" (by Anna Lauer), "The Angora Twinnies: A Child's Story" and "The Land of Nod" (by Margaret Evans Price). All 5 titles are solid and VG (or better) in their stapled, thick-card wrappers, with light, forgivable wear along the spines. A bit of chipping at the rear panel's top-edge of "Mother Goose Book of Rhymes" and very light soiling to several of the panels. No writing or markings of any kind internally though; all the plates are in lovely condition. Uniform folios, all 5 books were published between 1917 and 1919. An array of color on full display.
