Daniel Boone
By Ester Averill
Illustrations by Feodor Rojankovsky
Harper & Row, 1945

Ex-library hardcover that has more library stamps than is usual. There are three pages in the story that have a round stamp on them, (see last picture). There is one page that is stamped all over with library stamps. The other pages are clean. Binding is sound, corners are bumped; covers have surface soiling.

Daniel Boone was written by Esther Averill, a children's author and illustrator who studied photography and printing in Paris and started a press to publish children's books "illustrated by gifted young artists and reproduced by means of the excellent color processes that were available." Daniel Boone book was the first she published, in 1931. It would later be published more widely by Harper & Brothers.

Daniel Boone was illustrated by the Russian artist Feodor Stepanovich Rojankovsk, who would later win the Caldecott medal for his illustrated version of Froggie Went A-Courtin. Rojankovsk met Averill in Paris and although he was known for his erotic paintings, she tapped him to illustrate her first book with her new press. Rojankovsk would illustrate more than a hundred children's books after he emigrated to the United States during World War II.
