CONDITION: Good; neat, light penciled gift inscription, darkening pages are flat and clean, except for small spot on p 35; front hinge is starting and partially separated, so binding is fragile but holding; much wear to card on board corners and heavily chipped spine, but clean and bright. Picture Book Hardcover Ned is a large monkey with a great ambition, to pull the rope-driven elevator just as his friends the elevator boys do. We see him inside the elevator on a red bench gleefully pulling on the rope for the ascent. The illuminated binding shows wonderful artwork illustrating Ned's history and personality! Otherwise this book contains many short, pleasant, non-moralistic stories of interest to young children and those wondering about child life in the 1880's, reprinted from "Our Little Ones and the Nursery", William T. Adams, (Oliver Optic), editor. The illustrations are taken from various artists and the paper quality is fairly good. Appears in the Publisher's autumn announcement for 1887, in Bowker's Publisher's Weekly. Although a Little Ones annual was published, this book seems an uncommon format.
