Alphabet books are a collecting category in and of themselves and it would be difficult to find a more striking example than McLoughlin’s Starry Flag ABC Book. With outstanding full color chromolithographs throughout, this patriotic publication features a young navy cabin boy draped in the US flag on the cover and each letter of the alphabet festooned in red, white and blue. Additional three-color illustrations and text cover a variety of subjects (“Words with Three Letters,” “Alphabet Jingles,” “Some Fourth of July Boys”) but the real treasures here are the beautiful chromos. In VG+ condition with a small (1”) split in the covers at the tail of the spine.
