This is a double saleman's sample book in very good, clean condition. The pairing of titles is a bit odd, but here you have it -- half the book shows the Mary Frances sewing book, but when you flip it upside-down the back cover is the front cover for The Book of Knowledge. (see photos). To my mind the main book is the sewing book -- a charming title which even here in abbreviated form includes a sample pattern for little girls to learn to make doll cllothes. The art is very cute too and includes a couple more color plates. The Mary Frances books were a series designed to teach various domestic arts. The Book of Knowledge is interesting too, with lots of photos, but this is a great addition to a Mary Frances collection, or a sewing collection. Book measures 7"x9-1/2". Order forms at center are unused.
