'The Sling and the Swallow' Beautifully Illustrated Child’s Religious Story

This book is a lovely story about a young boy living in Jerusalem at the time of Christ. It was written by Eleanor Hull, with beautiful impressionist illustrations by Arthur Polonsky. Six of the illustrations are full-color, full-page, several others are smaller color illustrations and there are also many in black-and-white.

The book was copyrighted in 1963 by the United Church Press and is presumed to be a first edition, as there is no statement of later printing on the copyright page.

The book has dark green cloth boards printed in black. There is minor shelf wear at the top and bottom of the spine, and slight wear at the corners. The binding is tight, and the interior pages are in very good condition. The book contains 96 numbered pages, and measures approximately 7 by 9 inches. There is no dust jacket.
