Q: I found this email online as I was trying to find info on a book I have. A Wonder Book, 1899. I’m having a heck of a time finding info on what I have.
A: Your book is part of the Vademecum Series and was published in 1900. This series consisted of reprints of essays, fiction, classics, poetry, etc. It was published between 1894 and the 1920′s. Every year or so the cover design was changed. Your cover was used in 1900. The 1900 books came in a labeled slipcase box.
The 1900 books had one basic cover pattern in a number of different colors. I am including other color covers for your interest.
