Black Beauty by Anna Sewell, Illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg, Grosset & Dunlap, special edition 1945, 288 pages. This hardcover book is in near perfect condition, and, the book jacket is chipped in several places but I've wrapped in mylar for protection. A child wrote their name & classroom # in pencil on blank page facing the title page (may be erased)... see photos. The book is very tight, extremely clean and looks almost unread which is very unusual. The color and black & white illustrations are marvelous and worth the price of the book. The outside boards are tan in color with maroon / burgundy leaves and turquoise colored horses; just lovely.
