Old, Better Little Book- Gene Autry No. 1425

This is a vintage, Better Little Book featuring the America’s favorite “singing” cowboy, Gene Autry. It is titled Gene Autry and the Mystery of Paint Rock Canyon which was adapted by Bob Beaugrand and has Gene riding his horse, Champ on the colorful cover. Better Little Books came after the well known Big Little Books that were small and compact. This format is a little different but almost every other page of the story has a captioned illustration on it. It was published by the Whitman Publishing Co. of Wisconsin with a 1943 and 1947 copyright.

It measures about 3 11/16” by 4 ½” by 1” and is in nice condition. The inside pages are basically crisp and the spine is generally tight with a little release on the lower inside cover. The edges of the pages have a little crease and dent wear. The cover has good color and light edge wear, especially the corners.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
