Another book in the Peter Rabbit series of books published by Donohue in the late 1910's and early 1920's, Chicken Little is a very true-to-the-original version of the story. The books in this series are perversly amusing, because they have these cutsey illustrations that accompany a story someone usually gets killed. (This one has a body count akin to a "CSI" episode.)

The books in this series never have an author or an illustrator noted, but the beginning of this book does note a 1919 publication date. It is unpaginated, but is around 36 pages long, with 24 color illustrations. The illustrations are very funny; there is something about foul clad in clothing that always amuses me as being particularly absurd.

The Peter Rabbit series books are rare and collectible, and this one is in nice condition. If you're interested in more than one Peter Rabbit series book in my shop, convo me and I'll give you a discount!

BOOK CONDITION

The cloth exterior has some rubbing around the spine and some bending at the tips, but is generally clean and sound. The paste-down illustration shows some fading and a bit of rubbing.

The interior has a number stamped on a front illustrated endpaper and a gift inscription on an early blank page. The pages are clean and bright with very little age-related tanning, considering the age of the book. There is one place where there is evidence of some cracking at the spine, but the pages are all securely attached. There are no rips, tears or other marks.
