The 1971 Edition in 12 Volumes

The 50th anniversary edition published by United Educators in Lake Bluff, Illinois. ( See above) A remarkable testament to the affection and high regard which these volumes have enjoyed over the years. The illustrations are the same as those in the 1937 edition. The bindings are now white with titles colored on the spine. Complete sets are very rare. It is our good fortune to have two.

blue set

My Bookhouse. The blue set 1937. 12 volumes.
Miller, Olive Beaupre, Editor
set is a little more rare than the others – especially volume I. The price of this particular set reflects the fact that volume I is in only fair condition. The first twenty or so pages have been much handled by young fingers that hadn't always been washed. They are a little wrinkly and somewhat soiled. Some are slightly separated from the spine at the bottom of the book. There is only one seriously torn page. The greater part of the book is good to very good, the owners apparently concentrating on the first chapters. The other 11 volumes arfe in very good condition. Inventory # 8632
