TEETOCK AND PEEKO

np: nd [ca. 1935?]. Oblong string-tied album. 7" x 10". Portrait paintings of two monkey's affixed to front cover. 19pp. on 17 leaves, most rectos only, clearly and elegantly written in white caption pen to black album pages. Includes two black-and-white frontis photographs of the real Teetock and Peeko (children's toys) as well as two full-page, full-color painted illustrations to the story. Several pages loose, but cleanly laid in. Some chipping at the fore-edge. Else sound and apparently complete. Very good. Item #12911

Utterly disarming handmade children's book, detailing the story of the titular monkeys. Undoubtedly written for the owner of the "real" monkeys pictured in the frontis, the tale extends over five chapters as Teetock and Peeko struggle to return home from Furry Face Land. Quaint, cute, and illustrated with two colorful and striking paintings.
