Item #50018 Madeline. DUSTJACKET ONLY. Ludwig Bemelmans.
/LB, illustrator


[Simon & Schuster [1939] no publisher on jacket , no other books mentioned, 1st or very early printing, $2.00 on jacket. Earlyish copies exist which still have the 12 little girls error and yet have 2.50 jackets, but I cannot be sure that this is a first issue. Dustjacket only.

CONDITION: no book/Very Good; This jacket would be appropriate for a Very Good, but not a Fine, copy of Madeline. 3/8" margin tear top edge, otherwise no marks, tears, splits, or chips at all. The white areas are lightly toned, off white rather than ivory, tips of extrems are lightly bumped and rubbed. The yellow back shows light even soil. Some light rubbing on spine crease, flap creases nice, top edge rubbed. These are all minor flaws but the bottom corners and especially the top spine are bent from storage; this is not visible on the image and may self correct on a book, but the spine crease runs just below the spine title and is thus offset. From a large collection, mostly of 1930s books, removed by a children's librarian at acquisition and stored folded, unclipped 2.00. Item #50018

Price: $275.00
