1930s – 9 BOOKS – CHILDREN OF ALL LANDS – CHILDREN OF AMERICA – by MADELINE BRANDEIS
Another collection of uncatalogued books I just uncovered in my shop, and offered as a lot of 9 books (8 titles, and one duplicate). Hardcover, published by Grosset & Dunlap in New York, these copies do not have dust jackets. Three are pictorial front boards, and the others blue boards, but with pictorial stamping on the front cover. Books are all clean and tight with some edge wear, and measure about 6 3/4 inches by 8 3/4 inches with B&W illustrations, and include:
CARMEN OF THE GOLDEN COAST – 1935, 160 pages
LITTLE FARMER OF THE MIDDLE WEST – 1937, 143 pages
LITTLE ROSE OF THE MESA – 1935, 155pp
THE LITTLE SPANISH DANCER – 1936, 176pp
THE LITTLE SWISS WOOD-CARVER – 1929, 160pp
LITTLE PHILIPPE OF BELGIUM – 1930, 189pp
LITTLE JEANNE OF FRANCE – 1929, 191pp
LITTLE ANNE OF CANADA – 1931, 174 pp — TWO COPIES
A nice clean assortment to add to your children’s book collection, and to read to your child or grandchildren.
I have recently found a number of items put away in my shop that have never been catalogued and placed on the shelves. Hopefully I will get to over 20 Wizard of OZ books from the original family; many early HARDY BOYS with jackets and internal illustrations, and early original Tom Swift titles with jackets and internals.
