1 Herford, Oliver, with pictures by the author A CHILD'S PRIMER OF NATURAL HISTORY
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1902. Reprint. Copyrighted in 1899. Large square octavo. Hardcover. Very good, with covers worn, abraded, rubbed, age-darkened; in pictorial boards, all page edges tinted green; internals bright and clean! No dust jacket. 
The marvelous Herford provides a chapter-head sketch and a full-page b&w drawing for each of the animals he memorializes in wacky, punny rhymed verses: Seal, Giraffe, Whale, Leopard, Sloth, Ant, Ostrich, Fly, Platypus, Chimpanzee, more. Wonderful!

2 Herford, Oliver EXCUSE IT, PLEASE
Philadelphia & London: J.B. Lippincott Company, (1929). B00085UV92 First edition, first printing. Purple cloth shelfback with printed label, over peach decorative boards with purple lettering and design; dust jacket. Hardcover. Tiny, faint tape ghosts to all endsheets, minor wear at shelf edges, else fine; coated stock throughout; dust jacket shows faded spine, light edgewear, interior nick to rear panel, snagged edge tear to rear panel, tiny tape stains to flaps. Nice! 
Collection of comic verse accompanied by the fanciful quipster's b&w artwork. SIGNED by the author, with a dated inscription, which reads in part, "This Year of Our Beer 1933." Jacket art (a be-slipped woman praying at her bedside) is art deco heaven.
