SCRAPBOOK OF AN OREGON MOTHER MOUNTED ON 1920'S WALLPAPER SAMPLE BOOK

Oregon: SELF-PUBLISHED, 1928. Softcover. Large late 1920s to mid-1930s scrapbook, fashioned from a wallpaper sample book. (18” x 14” x 1.5”) The creator/owner lived in rural Oregon. The first 50 leaves feature pasted-in images on both sides and consist largely of images clipped from newspapers and magazines largely featuring mothers, young children and motherhood in general. Included also ar pictures of the Dionne Quintuplets, Royalty, children playing dress-up or brushing the teeth of a dog, a navy zeppelin flying over Portland, Oregon, a small flyer advertising child-actor Jackie Coogan in The Bugle Call, bright-and-soft images of radiant motherhood, baby animals, printed poems, poems written out (like “a Pickaninny’s Prayer”), and a number of local announcements as well. One of the most fascinating is a clipping depicting a photo of Mrs. Anna Hauptmann with her toddler captioned with the quote: “He couldn’t have been a kidnaper, he loves little Manfred so,” Mrs. Hauptmann asserted in defense of her husband (Bruno) who is held in connection with the Lindbergh kidnaping.” The scrapbook creator also pasted-in a number of original sketches, mostly after images she found in periodicals. The final nearly-sixty leaves are wallpaper samples only, with nothing pasted-in. Good Plus. Item #75084
