Rare 1930 "Aunt Brown's Birthday" First Edition Children Book

I am offering a rare 1930 first edition of "Aunt Brown's Birthday". Written and illustrated by Elsa Beskow, this delightful tale is part of the bestselling "Peter and Lotta" series - From one of Scandinavia's most-loved children's authors. Aunt Green and Aunt Lavender want to buy Aunt Brown a new hat and lace collar for her birthday, to match her dress. But how can they borrow her dress without her finding out about the surprise? This title was published by Harper and Brothers, out of New York and London.

The covers have some damage and an inscription is nicely written inside the open page. That is the only writing inside the book. The illustrations and pages inside are in excellent condition for it's age. Colors are bright and along with the black and white silhouettes style pages.

Reproductions have been made on this series, this is the original first edition.
