For those of you who love to celebrate Christmas, love little childrens voices raised in song and are drawn to angelic quality artwork, then this book is one you must have for your collection! When I found it and opened the book, I found myself wanting to sit right down and look at every last page, drawing and song enclosed...of course I was in the middle of a buying trip so I would have to forego my desire momentarily but knew that I had something very special to look at a bit later. I was not disappointed!! Here are some details about this book:
United States Publisher: Random House, 1942, Size is about 12" x 9 1/2"; New York: Random House. Fine in Very Good+ dust jacket. Hardcover. A most charming book in about Fine condition, showing only little wear. Tan cloth spine with paper-covered pictorial boards, lightly edge-worn, Fair+ dust-jacket with some lines, chip missing from spine and taped reinforced edges. Scarce in this condition; "This is a book that will give lasting joy to its owner. It contains the words and music of eighteen of the best-loved Christmas carols, and is exquisitely illustrated by Masha, whose drawings for A Childs Book of Prayers drew the highest praise from the public and critics all over the country."...as stated on cover flap.
I guarantee you will love this one! Though the dust cover shows wear it is supposed to protect the book within and in this case, has done it's job beautifully! The book inside is in wonderful condition with no tears, no marks, like-new pages and cover. And like I said before, the artwork will take your breath away even as you will find yourself singing the most beloved carols of yeasteryear!
