MR. SHARPTOOTH, 1903 illustrated children's book...

Mister Sharptooth
by Joe Kerr
Illustrations by Robert H. Porteous
G. W. Dillingham Co., Publishers
New York ~ 1903

I photographed the entire book and made a Picasa WebAlbum. The version above is just a miniature. You can view it full size here or by clicking on the title just below the cover. When the page loads, click slideshow. The book is in poor condition but the chromolithographed illustrations are wonderful. Enjoy this rare book with a happy ending and a moral too.

Dear Erica Lee...I hope you will be able to share this book with your students. I like to think that my grandfather read this book as a young child. ♥Rosemary
