Book Condition: Good


The spine and rear cover appear to have had some insect damage around the edges. Otherwise a gently used, unmarked, copy. Binding is tight and square. The dust jacket is chipped at the head of the spine and shows minor damage corresponding to the spine and rear cover of the book. Additionally, part of the rear panel of the jacket was exposed to newsprint or other acidic paper in an unprotected area along the fore-edge and top edge. 260 pages with illustrations by Helen Sewell and Mildred Boyle, including a color frontispiece illustration also featured on the dust jacket's front panel. The printing code F-C on the copyright page indicates a June 1953 printing. Garth Williams took over illustrating the Little House series in 1953, so this book appears to be from the last printing of the 1939 edition that featured the original illustrations of Sewell and Boyle. We cannot locate another copy of this printing; thus, a scarce copy.
