Rare 1907 Antique Book: The Wonderful Story of Teddy the Bear by Sarah Noble Ives - Children's Books - Decorative Illustrations - Decorating Books - Green Red Decorating Books

Rare antique children's book titled: "The Wonderful Story of Teddy the Bear" written and illustrated by Sarah Noble Ives. The book is a dark dusty green color (in cloth) with the title embossed in red and light green. The front cover is an illustration of a little girl and a bear reading a book. A charming accent piece for your nursery or home! There are beautiful illustrations in this book that could be removed and framed for a child's room or nursery! There are also small black with pastel color illustrations that could also be framed as artwork.

Sarah Noble-Ives 1864-1944, the artist and author, was active as a children's book illustrator during the period 1901-1911.

'The Wonderful Story of Teddy the Bear'
The original drawings and words by Sarah Noble-Ives, published by McLoughlin Bros., New York 1907, comprising fourty-two drawings.

Poor condition (see last image)....The spine has started to fray and come apart from the pages. There is also a chunk missing out of the top left front cover where the book may have gotten wet. The pages inside the book are stained at the top. The pictures can still be framed....some pages aren't as bad as others. It really is a beautifully illustrated book! If you would like to see more pictures just message me.
