Authors Game-Milton Bradley-Probable First Edition
Item #: NEW-0013323

Click image to enlarge
I have been unable to find a game of Authors on the web as old as this one.  I would be surprised if it not the first edition.  It is clearly from the 1880"s with color lithography.  The little box is complete but worn and is split on three of the corners.  The bottom is in good condition.  The backs of the cards are a blue color.  The game is complete according to the directions on the inside of the box which explains that seven authors are featured and there are three of each of those authors.  One of the cards does have a corner missing. It's pretty incredible to find a complete game this old.  The box measures five by four inches.

Howdy Doody Wooden Doll

Rubber band which serves as the belt is worn and may be missing a buckle as there are a couple of small holes. I also believe this doll may have had a straw hat, which is missing.
