Product Details

Description:
The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964. It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.

Additional Product Information

"Soldiers" is a Giant Funtime Book, is #GF118 and was published in 1957.  This is one of the more difficult to find books done in the 1950's. There are 6 pages done on heavy cardstock to punch out and create models of war and military settings from various eras.   Both covers are to be punched too, so that's included in the 6 pages.  The war or era si shown at the top of the pages. The only flaws to mention about this book is some slight cover and corner wear plus the lower right corner has a crease. All is shown in the photos.  This is amazing condition for  63years old!!!! Photos take you straight through the book, front to back. This is intact/complete and it measures 13" x 7.5".  The Giant or Golden Funtime books are difficult to find, are highly collectible and easily stored.  This would appeal to anyone who is a military enthusiast.

The publishing history for the Funtime Books was very diverse but the serial numbers remained consistent and in order no matter who did the publishing.  The first one was GF101 "Animals Around the World" in 1955 and the last one published was GF238 "Mary Poppins" in 1964.  They were called Giant Funtime Books until1958 and then became the Golden Funtime Books from there on.  All of them had the same measurements and format.  It's because of this history that I list all of these books under the "Golden" title since they can be found easier.

Please see photos for content and condition. All of the paper dolls that I offer are from estates and from other homes.  I don't know the previous storage history.  My collection is kept in a smoke/pet free area of my home with a dehumidifier running 24/7.  I have a poor sense of smell at my age and am unable to detect odors.  People smoked way back when, so that could linger and I would not be aware of it.  I try and list all of the flaws with any paper dolls that I sell.

Please, Pay Pal   only and I only ship to the continental US.
