With Original Photographs Of The Toys That Inspired The Story
TEETOCK AND PEEKO
Utterly disarming handmade children's book, detailing the story of the titular monkeys.
TEETOCK AND PEEKO
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.
n.p. n.p, [circa 1935]. 7'' x 10''. Oblong string-tied album, portrait paintings of two monkey's affixed to front cover. 19 pages on 17 leaves, most rectos only, clearly and elegantly written in white caption pen to black album pages. Includes two black-and-white frontispiece 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.
