Antique Book, 1911, 100yrs, Mothers Day, Mother and Child

Details

Mother and Child, Mother's Day Book of Poems(Phamplet), copyright 1911, Studio Press, Philadelphia Pennsylvania. This is a one of a kind and very hard to find book that has historical importance for Mother's Day as well as the pioneering organization for Child Welfare, The National Congress of Mothers. In addition, it includes famous turn of the century poets and authors of the day. Works of these poets and authors are hard to find. A list of the contributing poets is included at the end. A timeline and history of how Mother's Day came to pass illustrates the importance of this 1911 publication.

In 1910 the first Mother's Day proclamation was issued by the governor of West Virginia. That year West Virginia and Oklahoma both celebrated the day. By 1911 every state observed Mother's Day making this year the 100th anniversary of every state celebrating this day that would be designated a national holiday in 1914.

In May, 1913, The House of Representatives unanimously adopted a resolution requesting the President, his Cabinet, members of Congress, and all officials of the federal government to wear a white carnation on Mother's Day. Congress passed another Joint Resolution May 8, 1914, designating the second Sunday in May as Mother's Day.

This booklet was published for the National Congress of Mothers, the pioneer organization to improve the welfare of a child. Charlotte Brewster Jordan, the translator of the The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse and Our Sea, prepared this compilation of popular poems of the day about and for Mothers. A link to read more about the history of Mother's Day and how it came to pass is provided in Story Behind The Product and all you need do is copy and paste the http: link.

The publication is in overall excellent vintage condition with some fraying and some moisture discoloration around the front and back covers' edges. The 39 pages are in mint condition and only have the normal yellowing of any aged paper. A fabulous historical gift or document.

Poets used in this publication are as follows; George W. Cable
William Dean Howells,
Margaret E. Sangster,
Hester I. Radford,
Samuel Minturn Peck,
Charlotte Perkins Gilman,
Mary D. Brine,
Bernice Brown,
Edwin L. Sabin,

The doll I received isn't the one from the picture. Only one flower on her hat and missing tags. For $100 I expect what I paid for. I am incredibly dissapointed and will not shop with seller again.

What a great seller. Took extra photos for me and emailed them. Very easy to communicate with, and I got exactly what I expected-a beautiful vintage dress for my son's wedding, that was in excellent condition.
