About this Item

Not only does this elusive war-time storybook by the great Wanda Gag, best known for her delightful book "Millions of Cats", retain its original dustjacket, but it's an extremely GREAT dustjacket! Totally clean and crisp with no chips, creases or price-clip. Only faults are some browning to tops of white endflaps, a shadow from a former sticker on the front endflap and a tiny tear to the bottom of the same endflap. It will arrive in brand new mylar.The book itself is likewise clean and attractive with cover art matching that of the dustjacket. Though you can't see it when you open the book, hiding under the flap is a vintage bookplate which bears no name and a square brown shadow at the top, likely from a name sticker.The book is illustrated by Gag most charmingly in black and white -- perfect for these lesser known Grimm tales which include The Clever Wife, The Three Feathers and Goose Hans. 63 pages.

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!
