Kris Kringle’s Picture Book
Profusely Illustrated by:  E.T. Roe

Printers & Binders: Chicago: Donohue, Henneberry & Co
Edition: First Edition
Binding: Decorated Cloth-backed Boards
Date Published: 1894


No Dust jacket. An anthology of children's stories and poems. Although titled “Kris Kringle’s Picture Book”, there are only two Christmas stories with the balance being about general subjects. There are 32 black-&-white illustrations throughout by various artists; one for every story.  5 of these B&W pictures were colored (nicely, with light marker) by the previous owner and I have shown an example of this in a photo.  There is yellowing to pages and borders. The cloth binding is in gray cloth as is the spine. All four corners are bumped. There is an ornate color-illustration of Kris Kringle (Santa Claus) on the front cover (pictured); boards are aged and in as-pictured condition.  There is a sticker on the back cover (pictured) that I am unsure whether it is original or not.

Cover is separated from first front title page and back page; all other pages are intact.  There are 3 pencil drawings of old ships on both the reverse side of first title page and on the reverse side of back cover.  There appears to be a missing last (blank) page of the book.  62 pages.
Please see photos provided for a visual description of this book.  I am not an expert and do not want to misrepresen
