The Golden Book Encyclopedia - 16 volume complete set of knowledge and amazing illustrations - 1959
Complete set of Golden Book Encyclopedias, 1959, printed by Simon and Schuster.
To use their own words: "In sixteen accurate, fact-filled volumes, Dramatically illustrated with more than 6,000 color pictures. Comprehensive and Authoritative. Entertainingly written and illustrated to make learning an adventure." Really, that about sums it up.
Hardcover books with nice heavy quality pages. The illustrations are wonderful, great for reading or for artists.
SIZE: each volume is 7 3/8" x 10 1/4"
CONDITION: The pages are clean, crisp and look barely read. The hardcovers have a cellophane coating that is flaking off and is making funky looking spots on some of the covers that are aesthetically annoying but harmless.
