About this Item

Whitman Publishing Company, Racine, WI. 1932. Hardcover. First (?). Book is loose around the spine, square, and unmarked. Book Condition: Good; this is a stapled text with the facing end papers stapled as two pages and not one across the hinge. The boards were then glued on the outer stapled end papers making it appear to have split hinges. The cover over the spine is loose due to the glue around the wrapped silver paper covering on the boards. This book is profusely illustrated by Juanita Bennett with full page all color plates on heavy paper stock in Art Deco style of 1930's with famous verses by Robert Louis Stevenson. Silver paper spine with picture of small boy on the beach with sailboat. Boards are scuffed, wear to tail, head, and tips, the heavy stock paper is browning along edges. Originally published in 1885, A Child's Garden of Verses has served as a wonderful introduction to poetry for each new generation. Stevenson's beloved poems celebrate childhood in all its complexity and joy, from The Land of Nod to the playful, ever-popular My Shadow. Don't let the spine problem fool you- this is a beautiful interior text that would rate Fine by itself. Bookseller Inventory # 003373
