Complete set of 20 booklets in Staple-bound card wraps, 9.4 by 15.1 cm, 15-16 pp. ea., housed in original mailing box. Booklet no. 1 has a chip to the lower corner of the front cover, a repaired chip to the upper corner, and a 3 cm tear on the bottom edge of the front cover near the spine. The remaining booklets are near fine. The original mailing box is poor with corner splits, heavy wear, and the mailing label and stamp removed. “The purpose of these twenty pamphlets is to teach boys and girls of the fourth, fifth, and sixth grade levels the power of goodness of God as demonstrated in the world around them.” The subjects treated include God’s Gifts to Man; Earth and Sky; Mineral and Metals; Gems; Plants; Trees; Flowers; Fruits; Wild Animals; Tame Animals; The Dog; Side-Show Animals; Birds; Insects, Part A; Insects Part B; Fishes; Snakes; Man; Tribes and Races; and the Conclusion. Very much a product of its time, in the Tribes and Races booklet the author expounds on the sad situation “these one-time children of God” experience when “Eskimo children eat fat or decayed fish as our children eat candy,” “Toureg women never powder and paint, but the men do,” and in Quito, Ecuador, “women tip their hats to men instead of the men to the women.”
