I found it at a thriftstore for $5. It is falling apart, but I like the drawings. ("auto-levels" and cleaned up a bit  in Photoshop)

Illustrators: E. Klingebeil, L. Berwald, & R. Lotter


Scans of prints from a 1900 book called "Five Little Peppers"


From "Wit and Humor of the World" -1915 (no printed date, but hand-dated as a gift in 1915)

Below is a scan from "Mottoes and Commentaries

of Froebel's Mother Play" Pub. 1895

How they sometimes appear before I hit Photoshop's "auto-levels":
