Description

What a treasure this book is: "The Adventures of Pinocchio" by C. (Carlo) Collodi, brilliantly illustrated in full color and black and white line drawings by Attilio Mussino, translated from the Italian by Carol Della Chiesa, and published by The Macmillan Company, New York City, in 1931.

Originally written in 1883, this story of a poor woodcarver named Geppetto and his wooden puppet became a cultural icon in 1940 when Disney released their film "Pinocchio."

I wish I had room to show all of the fantastic, colorful illustrations. There are 12 full color plates and 26 black and white line drawings scattered through the 220 pages of this book, which measures approximately 7-1/2 by 5-3/4 inches.

It's in remarkably good condition for its age, although the gold cloth boards show wear along the edges, discoloration along the spine, a fading of the lettering and drawing of Pinocchio with his head in a circle and protruding nose, and a slight water glass mark on the front cover (see last photo).

The pages, however, are clean (while showing some age), the illustrations bright, and the binding tight. There is no dust jacket.

The whole book is a joy to read and look at.

Contact me at the time of order. I love packaging orders and do not charge for wrapping. Some large items are not as easy to package attractively.
We source all of our items here in rural New Hampshire, along with some that we've owned and found in Virginia and New Jersey, where we lived previously.
Most are vintage (pre-owned). Most will show some signs of use and wear. I try hard to be complete in my descriptions and fully disclose any known flaws.
I'm happy to answer any questions you have about condition, quantity, or size before purchasing an item. Please convo me.
Etsy gives us room for 10 photos, and I usually use all of them. If you need more for some reason, please feel free to contact me.

All my items are vintage, but I'm happy to box together a number of different pieces with an adjusted price, just for you. I can also put items on a 24-hour Reserve. Convo me and let me know what you'd like!
