About this Item

Wonderful 1933 children's tale about "Baldasarre" the "handsome donkey" and his friend "Tedesco", the dachsund. VG in its mustard cloth, with mild darkening along the spine. Octavo, beautifully illustrated thruout by Emma Brock.THIS COPY ALSO INCLUDES 4 ORIGINAL BLACK-AND-WHITE PHOTOS, 2 OF WHICH ARE OF A DONKEY AND DACHSUND. THE DONKEY AND DACHSUND PHOTOS BELONGED TO EMMA BROCK AND MARY GOULD DAVIS ( BASED ON THE INSCRIPTIONS ON THE BACK OF EACH PHOTO) AND WERE VERY LIKELY THE MODELS FROM WHICH THEY ILLUSTRATED AND CREATED "BALDASARRE" AND "TEDESCO". Magnificent supporting ephemera, making this a very unusual (even a one-of-a-kind) copy. Bookseller Inventory # 8623
