BALDWIN, EMMA COCKRELL. Kodak Sketches of Two Little Girls, A Story Book for Children, Boston: Idea Co., 1900. Octavo, priority unknown to me, pp. 167, gray cloth boards with silver-stamped lettering on spine, red, black and silver stamped illustration on upper panel, halftone photos. An early use of photos in a children's book, and one of Kodak's endless attempts to spread photography into a mass market. Very scarce -- OCLC locates four in institutional libraries. Condition of this book: Boards spotted and stained, upper panel illustration flaking. Leaves clean, spine no longer tight, with two hinge cracks (front hinge inexpertly repaired with clear tape), images fine.
