I mainly sell Little Golden Books made into notebooks, here on Etsy, but sometimes I find a book in my travels that I declare is too good to cut up. Either it is a first edition, 1970's or earlier or just in such good repair that it would be a valued addition to any child's bookcase, or in a collectors shelf.
Please zoom in on the various photos to get an idea of the condition of this particular book. What I have noted is...
In good used condition. No 269. The front cover rip on spine bottom, corner wear, top spine starting to wear and spine paper coming off at bottom. But inside is in good condition, the edge of the pages have a couple of age spots and yellowing.
I am a bit sentimental over this one as it is one I had as a kid. The illustrations are soooo cute, by Joseph Giordano. Written by Carl Memling.
