Written & Illustrated by Johnny Gruelle
Raggedy Andy Stories Introducing the Little Rag Brother of Raggedy Ann
Measures 9 x 6 inches Weighs 12 ounces

Condition: Fair.
Boards are sturdy and pages are tight - all accounted for. Two pages I found had slight crayon scrawls, they do not affect the text. A few pages have closed tears. Remarkable overall.

Wikipedia: Johnny Gruelle (December 24, 1880 – January 9, 1938) was an American artist, political cartoonist, children's book author and illustrator (and even songwriter). He is known as the creator of Raggedy Ann and Raggedy Andy.
Gruelle gave his daughter Marcella a dusty, faceless rag doll found in the attic. He drew a whimsical face on the doll and named her Raggedy Ann, and in 1915 patented and trademarked the design and name[9] The U.S. Patent D47,789 was dated September 7, 1915. Gruelle began approaching publishers, and 1918, the P.F. Volland Company published Raggedy Ann Stories, promoting it with a Raggedy Ann doll.[9] Both became major successes.[10] In 1920, Gruelle introduced Raggedy Ann's brother, the mischievous and adventuresome Raggedy Andy, in the book Raggedy Andy Stories.[11] Gruelle was awarded a patent for a stuffed animal in 1921 U.S. Patent D59,553.
