Hello fellow collectors!!!
I recently posted my Uncle Wiggily Longears lamp. This is my Uncle Wiggily Longears book collection that I mentioned in the post. Uncle Wiggily Longears was a charactor created by Howard R. Garis in 1910. He wrote many books, in the early 1900's, based on this character. The first series of these books were published by the A. L. Burt Company, in the early 1900's, with a second printing by the Platt and Munk Publishing Company in the late 1930's thru the early 1950's. All of these, however, were printed between 1939 and 1950 by the Platt and Munk Publishing Co. With the exception of a 1912 edition of Uncle Wiggily's Adventures, published by A.L. Burt Publishing Company and a VERY rare 1915 edition of Uncle Wiggily Longears (pic #4).
The books in the collection consists of the following titles:
Uncle Wiggly Longears
Uncle Wiggily's Story Book
Uncle Wiggily's Picture Book
Uncle Wiggily and His Friends
Uncle Wiggily and the Littletails
Uncle Wiggily's Adventures (1939 edition)
Uncle Wiggily's Adventures (1912 edition)
Uncle Wiggily's Travels
Uncle Wiggily's Airship
Uncle Wiggily's Automobile
Uncle Wiggily In The Country
Uncle Wiggily On The Farm
Uncle Wiggily's Fortune
Uncle Wiggily and Jackie and Peetie Bow Wow
I believe these were the only ones published by Platt and Munk, with the exception of Uncle Wiggily's Happy Days, which I do have, but unfortunately I am unable to find it in my boxes of books, for now anyway!!
In addition to the Uncle Wiggily Longears books, I also have a complete 1916 edition of the Milton-Bradley Co. Uncle Wiggily board game in my collection.
Thanks for stopping in to see my Uncle Wiggily Longears books!!
