Forty Years and Other Tales
Here is a 1908 book published by the Swedish Publisher, Beijers.
Although my Swedish is not very impressive, it appears that this book is #66 in a paperback series. It is comprised of vignettes written by George W. Peck and Bill Nye. It has 162 pages and is 8″ x 5.75″.
Based on the advertisements (as shown below) two other Peck authored books are part of this series. #37 “Thief Boy American Humor” and 38. “Thief Boy American Humor”. I suspect, although I am far from certain, these books are Peck’s Bad Boy #1 and #2.
This advertising piece has eight different trade cards attached together on the front with advertising for the Corner Grocery play at the Amesbury Opera House on the reverse. These cards were meant to be attached since the text on the back continues from one card to the next.
It appears that this a complete set of the trade cards(eight) which was produced for this play. This is an incredibly rare item.
