The Best Vocabulary Flash Cards I've Ever Seen, 1950s

Regular price $50.00

I love a good set of flash cards, and this is a fantastic one, and a huge one, with I'd guess somewhere between 500-1000 double sided cards, featuring words with pronunciation cues on one side and wonderfully thorough definitions on the other. Looking as if typed on a type writer, I believe they must have been produced in a small batch--this set once the property of The Reading Center in Boston--and are housed in a blue cloth covered box with silver text. The words themselves are really excellent, and I believe one could spend the next year or 10 testing and enriching one's vocabulary with them. The'd also be terrific for incorporating into collages, or playing games with, or putting to all sorts of other creative uses; just excellent. On the underside of the lid is written the name of their onetime owner Shirley Mae Barron and the year 1958.

Box measures 6 1/4" x 5 1/2" x 2". Cards measure 2 1/2" x 1 1/2". Some wear to one corner of the box but otherwise very good condition, as are the cards, clean and bright.
