MY BOOK. Blackie & Son. Pre-1950. Very, very scarce! Rare.

My Book written by various authors. Published by Blackie and Son Limited, London and Glasgow. No date. Pre-1950. Hardcover with pictorial boards and cloth spine. 7 full-page glossy illustrations by different artists. All are exceptionally charming. Unpaginated. Larger format of 9" by 11".

Filled throughout by drawings and cartoons on nearly every page, plus the glossy plates. Here are short stories, poems and comics / cartoons. There is variety here for every child and/or young adult.

I have been unable to locate any other copy of this book anywhere. It may be that it is the first of the My Books published by Blackie. I would date its publication to the `30's. This is a very scarce, rare book.

Condition: VG++. It is unusual to find a children's book in this excellent condition. Front cover rubbed on edges, gift inscription neatly on front free endpaper dated 1951, browning to endpapers, but interior clean, bright and tight. Please view all photos, and excuse the dappled sunlight on the pages, as they give an accurate description of the condition.
