A Dozen Good Times                                  Mrs.Palmer in later life

A Dozen Good Times, by Mrs. George Archibald  (Anna Campbell Palmer)

         Lothrop,  1898

One of two (very scarce) titles by Archibald that Sacker designed. The School Journal of December 10, 1898, described the book as follows:

     "In a neat little volume Mrs. George Archibald tells of A Dozen Good Times that Georgiana and Dolly had. As little girls like to read about good times as well as have them, Mrs. Archibald's narrative of what occurred on April Fool day, Arbor Day, at the circus parade, at the August party, Thanksgiving and Christmas, etc., will find many readers

Interestingly, Georgianna was the name of the author's own daughter. A color variant appears below.
