Whoa! You can't buy your own item.

Rare find — this item is hard to come by.

  • Vintage from the 1950s

This is a hardcover edition of Far and Few: Rhymes of the Never Was and Always Is, written by David McCord and published by Little, Brown and Company in February, 1953. It is a second printing, with drawings by Henry B. Kane. From the dust jacket: "Far and Few takes its title from 'The Jumblies' by Edward Lear. It contains sixty poems with a great variety of rhythm and ideas, of humor, delight, imagination, and a tinge of sadness in occasional lines."

This copy is in very good condition overall, with the following defects noted. The dust jacket shows a bit of scuffing and edgewear and a few light marks, but has an intact price of $2.75 and is overall in very nice condition. The pages are yellowed, but the boards and binding are in great shape and there are no text markings or owner's marks. It is fairly rare to find a children's book from the early fifties in such beautiful condition, so don't miss your chance to buy it now.

Your book will be shipped within two business days via USPS Media Mail. Please contact me if you have any questions, and thanks a bunch for looking!

I certainly don't have any boys and girls from 1901 in my house, but it's a great reference for a period piece I'm working on...and when I'm done, I can frame some amusing (and quite pretty) illustrations! Yay! :D
