INSCRIBED BY POLITI WITH A WONDERFUL WATERCOLOR DRAWING. Gray cloth with Francis, 3 children, and a lamb in dark red pictured on front; interior clean and unmarked The unclipped dustjacket, while bright, shows considerable wear: a 3 inch tear to lower rear, an inch tear along front gutter, many small chips at spine extremities and along edges, a two inch narrow scrape at the back flap fold, and minor overall rubbing. Inscribed by Politi, "To my friend JoAnn Moore / With gratitude / Leo Politi / 1959" on the front endpaper, the inscription morphed into a lovely colorful ink/watercolor with a bright orange butterfly and rosy flower (?) entwined in the flowing J. A. M. of Ms. Moore's name. Politi's introduction to Saint Francis for young children is appropriately gentle, illustrated in mostly muted colors, with bright accents: a red bird; green and red and purple clothing on smiling children; a bright blue sky.
