Minute Boys of philadelphia (Dana Estes)               Minute Boys Philly green

The Minute Boys of Philadelphia, by James Otis

         Dana Estes, 1911/L. C. Page, 1926

Otis was a prolific writer of children's books, authoring more than 170 titles. I have identified Sacker designs for at least twenty-four Otis books. My heartfelt thanks to Caitlin Marineau, of the Children's Literature Research Collections, Elmer L. Anderson Library, University of Minnesota, for this very scarce image. Although this cover is unsigned, contemporary advertisements indicated Amy did individual covers for all the titles in the "Minute Boys" series [see bottom of the screen].
