Pedro The Angel of Olvera Street 1st Edition 1946 California classic

Pedro The Angel of Olvera Street by Leo Politi and illustrated by Leo Politi, Copyright 1946, first edition. It has all the points of a first edition but it may be a later printing even though it is not stated so. The book is in mint, unread condition, the dust jacket (wrapped in protective mylar) has small tears and is price clipped. The inside front board has a label from the original booksellers shop. I'm a native of Los Angeles and love this book to pieces but must part with it. The illustrations and text are much beloved by several generations & contains the song "La Pinata". This classic book is about a Mexican boy who is chosen to be an angel in the Christmas Posada procession. Books by this author in this condition are scarce. NOTE: "the book is side sewn, strongly reinforced and can be cleaned with a damp cloth".
