Grandma’s Tiny Books

The Norka Series of little books was printed in the early 1900s “bound in Ooze leather, printed in two colors, cover stamped in gold, 25 cents.”  These are two that my grandmother, Ruth Bressler Claycomb, received from her parents.  They are about 2 1/2 x 3 1/4 inches.

  1. My grandmother also had tiny books…an entire set of maybe two dozen. I don’t know the titles or publisher or dates, because one of my nieces has them. But they must have been generally popular. I had never seen or heard of any others until now.


  2. !: Now I need to go to ebay and add some of these to my hoard/ collection
    2. I find it interesting that hers is from “Mother Christmas” that’s a new one on me!
