Love this ex-library edition of "Praying Mantis" by Olive L. Earle!

Hardcover with green fabric / cloth cover and printed image of a praying mantis at the bottom of the front cover. Rare find in this binding, it seems! (Note that photos may appear aqua, but cover is more of a shamrock green color.)

Has library markings on cover and spine, as well as partial due date (blank) card on inside of back cover. Also has library stamp inside front title page, which has since been blacked out with marker. Otherwise all pages are intact and clean.

I just think this book is so neat! I figured the right person could probably make one awesome altered art book or journal from this one, since the cover is especially awesome. But don't discount the great illustrations inside! They could be fun for altered art projects, too!

Book is approximately 8 1/4 inches tall x 6 3/4 inches wide x 1/4 inch thick.

48 pages
