6 3/4" by 5 1/4". Some small spotting here and there, nothing terrible except in one volume a soil spot on the first page. The interior binding publishers tape is aging and peeling up in a few volumes (compare the 8th and 9th photos) but the pages are VERY secure. One volume has some waviness to the pages.Corner boards bumped and worn (see 5th and 6th photos). Colors are bright, no tears, no markings (other than former owners name), overall good condition. The advertisement for these books appeared in Child's Life magazine in 1939, and that complete issue is included in this lot.
The ad shows in the 1st photo above, but in the issue, there is another article by Judy Garland about The Wizard of Oz. The issue is in really nice condition and has amusing ads and other articles.
