About this Item

The chunky Little Big books were the fad back in the 30's. They were cheaply made and cheap to buy, so it's amazing you can still find them in good condition. Here's one that beat the odds with all 396 pages intact and binding not cracked or broken. The only fault is toning to the cheap acidic paper. Illustrations are plentiful -- drawings by Henry Muheim. Book is designed with paper over boards. Minor wear to edges and small crease to corners. The boy who once owned it penciled his name and street at back of book. Book measures 3-1/2" x 4-1/2".

Store Description

Garrison House Books has maintained an on-line presence since 1997. We are a general interest used, rare, and out-of-print bookstore based in the quaint Victorian town of Medina, Ohio. American history, children's books and ephemera (the history of the people) intrigue us most, but we buy and maintain books in all categories. We are Tess and Eric Kindig, married forever, and passionate about books, bookselling and readers. Tess has been a newspaper reporter, magazine writer, and public relations director, and is still a working author with 13 published books to her credit. Eric owns Log Cabin Inc. in Lodi, Ohio, an 8,000-plus square foot retail establishment specializing in historical books and reenactment accoutrements. In addition to his remarkable ability to schlep large piles of books from hither to yon, Eric brings over 30 years of retail experience to this endeavor! Also, joining our staff are our beloved bookshop kitties -- Miss Lil and Mickey. The former provides gentility and elan, and the latter (who is basically a street thug) provides comic relief. We believe that books are treasures, not commodities, and that readers are individuals, not numbers. Our greatest joy is in getting to know you and serving you with grace and good humor. We appreciate your business very much!
