profusely and beautifully illustrated from the postwar grade school history series by the team of maud and miska petersham. a gorgeous addition to a child's library or to any collection of children's book illustrators. too many pictures in this book to list - more images available by request.

when my son was born i began a quest to build him a library of great story and picture books. often i found myself falling in love with the beauty of a book's cover or illustrations and greedily stocked our home shelves with the treasures i couldn't resist. my own collection of vintage and antique children's book illustrators grew out of our little family's enthusiasm for good stories and pretty pictures. this title is from that collection, now being culled and curated to make room for new projects.

good vintage condition. 1948 john c. winston company. ex-library book with typical wear to edges and corners of cover, library pocket and inked stamps inside front and back cover. brown hardcover with wrinkled color pastedown illustration and slight bowing to front cover. pages are clean and binding is sound. five color illustrations are remarkably bright and vibrant, these make the true value of the book.

please note: original copyright is 1936 and some depictions of ethnic and native peoples are of their time. they may not be considered as acceptable for modern children.

7 1/2" x 7 3/4"
