Vintage 1930's Book of Knowledge Sales Brochure for Children's Encyclopedia


This little sales brochure was given to parents to push the sale of the Book of Knowledge Children's Encyclopedia by the Grolier Society and is quite impressive. It was printed in the early 1930's and has for that time, expensive color plates and photography reprints and illustrations. One statement caught my eye -"Your child's life will be JUST what you make it" and "don't let your child grow up handicapped and unable to meet the demands which will surely be made upon him in this time of great changes." No pressure here parents. It is in good condition and has a little creasing on the edges and two of the pages have some original dye bleed. It measures 6" x 9" and has 23 pages. What a fun peek into the past for a retired librarian like me.
