Exceedingly scarce in the original box, Dolly's Library was published by Ernest Nister in London (and by E.P. Dutton in the U.S.) and consists of five small (3-1/4 x 3-3/4") titles: Three Little Maids from School, A Rabbit's Tale, The Tale of a Dog, Snapdragon, and A Birthday Present. Each 12-page (plus endpapers) volume features the same format with four beautiful full color chromolithographs and several small line drawings. In generally VG+ condition, the box is complete and tight, but shows some wear and soiling and has been strengthened at the corners. Three of the books are in Fine condition and two (The Tale of a Dog and A Rabbit's Tale) are VG+ with some rusting at the staples.
