TALES ABOUT TIMOTHY by Gertrude Blumenthal. 1945, very scarce children’s book. Charming illustrations.

Tales About Timothy by Gertrude Blumenthal, illustrated by Corinne Malvern and published by the Whitman Publishing Company of Racine, Wisconsin, copyright 1945. Larger format of 11 ½" by 8", hardcover, with decorated boards, 67 pages, decorated endpapers with illustration of Timothy with his dog and balloons, each balloon having an illustration of one of the stories in the book -- very clever!

This charming children's book from the 40's is very scarce and rarer still with its original dust jacket. The stories are as popular with children today as when originally published.

Condition: Dust jacket has multiple chips and small tears, however, still bright and unfaded or sunned. Book covers have rubbed edges top and bottom and the book is bowed somewhat. Gift inscription on front free endpaper, neatly, in ink, dated 1949. Interior is clean, bright and tight.
