The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Games of Cats and Mice Gantlope and Lost Diamond

board game

McLouglin Brothers' 1877 combination games "Cats and Mice, Gantlope, and Lost Diamond" came packaged in a slipcase, similar to other McLoughlin games of the period. However, this particular slipcase is actually shaped, on one end, to resemble the spines of two books. So not only did the game fit on the owner's bookcase, it blended in with the shelved books.
