A gorgeous M.A. Donohue. antique children's book, Picture Primer No. 625 is a 32 page paperback book and a wonderful example of the period's children's illustration style.

The American Antiquarian website dates this book as 1901 with a question mark, so we'll go with that. It certainly appears to be from the turn of the century.

Of note, inside the book, there are subtitles on the top of each page. On the left it reads "Little Bright Eyes." On the right it reads "Picture Primer." It may suggest this was one of a series of books, though I'm not finding enough information on-line to confirm that.

The front and back covers are full color. The pages themselves are rich in black and white illustrations. The first few pages are a review of the alphabet followed by various language arts lessons ranging from word recognition to early reading. See our photographs for examples of the illustrations and content.
