For me there is an 'ahhh' factor when I see an early well loved book or charming school book. The McGuffey's Reader is one such textbook that evokes that very sentiment. The McGuffey's Reader is one of the best known school books in American history. They began to be used in 1836 and are actually still in use in some school sytems even today. When you see the country charm that these early books have, you realize these books go right along with your other primitives. In the photo below, you will not only see McGuffey's Readers (First through Fifth) but also a cloth covered school book (a common practice to protect a cherished book), small books with marbelized covers from the 19th century, a stack of little size books, cherished and repaired, and an early Appleton school book. Do you like early school books? If you have any to share please do.....we will be delighted to see yours. If you have any for sale, please feel free to add a link.
