Golden Book Encyclopedia - $20 (Salmon Creek/Vancouver)

12345678

condition: good

The Golden Book Encyclopedia 15 out of 16 books (volume 15 is missing). I have two copies of volume 4.
Most of the books are in good condition, no marks or torn pages. The cover of the spine is loose at the end of a few and the cover of the spine is missing on a couple. Even so, the binding is secure on every one of the books. This is a finely illustrated set of books, and is sure to provide hours of enjoyment for the reader. Copyright 1959-60.

Please text, email or phone. Thank you. I'm one mile from I-5 and I-205.

Great gift!

FROM WIKIPEDIA: The Golden Book Encyclopedia is a set of children's encyclopedias published by Western Printing and Lithographing Company under the name Golden Press.[1] Advertised with circulars in newspapers, the encyclopedias were sent out in weekly or bi-weekly installments. Supermarket chains, such as Acme Markets, used these encyclopedias as a promotional hook to lure shoppers.
The front page of every volume describes the books as, "Fact-filled Volumes Dramatically Illustrated with More Than 6,000 Pictures. The Only Encyclopedia for Young Grade-school children. Accurate and Authoritative. Entertainingly written and illustrated to make learning an adventure. Subjects covered in the series included nature, science, history, geography, literature, and the arts.
