John Martin's Book: A Magazine for Little Children

Published: New York, John Martin's House; London, G Bell & Sons
Date: 1914
Description: 24pp, many drawings and illustrations throughout 24x18, wraps. One torn page, several chips and tears, several drawings have been augmented by an early and enthusiastic reader, fair for this type and age of item.
Notes: Published between 1912 and 1933, John Martin's Book was aimed at 5 to 8 year olds from well to do families. Probably the last issue before the outbreak of war, which makes the title page all the more moving: the flags of the countries of the world, with readers (Little John-Martiners) entreated to hold hands in Brotherly Love across the countries of the world.
