About this Item

Very clean and tightly bound with a few small smudges on the back cover. Slight fraying to the bottom of the spine. The covers are perfectly attached, without any cracking, and the covers have very good, unworn and unbumped edges. Bound in light green cloth, with a cover illustration in red and dark green showing two children dancing around a small tree. 45 illustrations by J. R. Neill. The very clean dust jacket has a complete front panel with flap, and a complete spine reading "Altemus Wee Books / Nursery Tales No. 1". The back panel lacks the diagonal lower left blank of about 3 inches long by about a maximum height of one inch, and lacks the bottom 1-1/4 inches of the plain back flap. The book has a copyright date of 1904, but I am estimating that this is about a 1918 printing, having 8 titles listed on the back of the title page. There are no ownership inscriptions or bookplates. Size: 24mo - over 5" - 5¾" tall. Bookseller Inventory # 15274
