JULIA HARRINGTON; Winnebago, Iowa 1913

Boston: Little, Brown, and Company, 1969. Second edition. Hard Cover with illustration. quarto. pp 84. illustrated. Near Fine in Near Fine Dust Jacket. Item #149

A fascinating look at small-town America in the year 1913, through the images of the trade literature of the day. The girl's experiences of the day are reflected in the corresponding products and their advertising, such as wallpaper sample books or (my favorite) the pattern book for paints and Victorian houses ("$8.12 paints this house, 22 x 28 --21 feet high").

Price: $15.00
