Billy Butter, by Berta & Elmer Hader, First Edition, 1936, Illustrated Children's Book

Here is a wonderful illustrated children's book that will delight your youngster or add just the right touch to your collection. Titled "Billy Butter" it is the story of a goat, thus the pun in the title. It was written by Berta and Elmer Hader and first published in October of 1936 by MacMillan. The book contains 92 pages with many black and white illustrations along with five wonderful color illustrations. We believe that it was originally published with a dust jacket, but alas that is now missing. The cover measures 9 1/8 inches by 8 1/4 inches. The corners on the top and bottom of the spine are slightly frayed. There is some minor spotting on the cover and the pages inside are clean but with a slight bit of yellowing due to age. There is an owner's signature in fountain pen ink on the inside front cover that is dated February 1937. Overall, it is a better than average copy of a book that is frequently found in bad shape due to the many eager hands that pawed through it over the years. This book is a cut above. The delightful illustrations by themselves would make the book worth having!
