What I have in this line, is pretty weak sauce compared with books told of by many posters in this thread: but my reckoned "joint oldest", passed down in the family, are, best guess, from about the World War 1 era (no publication date shown in either). They are: a delightfully illustrated edition of the "Uncle Remus" stories (I fear that I find making sense of Joel Chandler Harris's Southern Black dialect, more of a labour than I'm prepared to undertake; but the pictures are lovely); and a little book of "Sixty Best Humorous Recitations" -- the majority of them cringe-makingly un-funny and awful.
