This is a good solid hardcover. Bobby Merrill Publishing Co. 1909. This copy is good inside and out. The pages have light natural tanning from age but are clean with no markings seen. The binding is tight and straight BUT PLEASE NOTE that there is some binding separation from hardcover boards between back cover and the rest of binding but the pages are all still tight. Binding separation as such is often common in vintage books and considered acceptable if the pages are intact and still bound together. Brown hardcover boards with color illustrated pastedown on front cover are also good, There is a scuff to front cover where sticker removed, showing some shelf wear but overall good and clean. Medium octavo book size or 6" x 9'.

James Whitcomb Riley was an American writer and poet, notably Childrens poems. He became very wealthy during his career and by the time he stopped touring people were referring to him as the "National Poet", and "the peoples poet". some of his favorite poems stemmed from events and recollections of his childhood and most poems are quaint and romantic sparking sentiments of yore.
This edition features romantic "school days" memories and is finely illustrated in color by E. Stetson Crawford. The pages of this edition are a heavy stock, almost cardboard like making it a sturdy volume of approx. 46 pages.
