About this Item

FIRST AMERICAN EDITION / FIRST PRINTING by Grosset and Dunlap, written & illustrated by A Bousier-Mougenot, translated by George Duplaix. During Our Little Shepherdess Doudou's Merry-Go-Round ride at the Circus (Cirque), her Red Airplane breaks loose with her and her pet squirrel & duck and they soar high into the sky. They travel the world on a great adventure meeting different people and wild animals in the USA, Europe, Asia and Africa. Folio, pictorial paper over boards, unpaginated (about 50 pages ), in EXCELLENT Condition! (10" x 13"). No Names Marks or Damage, Just a slight upper right corner bump to covers and pages - Remarkably Clean. There is just a small blemish on the upper spine edge of the rear paste-down as only distraction. Bi-lingual, with French under each Illustration and English on the opposite text page, with every other panel in Full Color! Clearly reminiscent of Jean De Brunhoff's Babar, but much more whimsical and charming. It's interesting to note that in the tale of the African Village, the translator did not use the French original "Les negres" ! BUT THE GREAT PART IS IT RETAINS IT'S ORIGINAL MATCHING COLOR PICTORIAL DUST JACKET - in Very Good Condition, In tact with slight spine tip wear and fade only, In tact with original unclipped flaps, and a bit of rear edge soiling.
