This is an old Better Little Book featuring the America’s favorite detective, Dick Tracy. This one is titled Dick Tracy and the Bicycle Gang by Helen Berke. It is based on the famous comic strip by Chester Gould. Better Little Books came after the well known Big Little Books. This format has a captioned illustration on almost every other page with text on the opposing page. It was published by the Whitman Publishing Co. of Wisconsin with the last copyright date of 1948 by The Chicago Tribune and licensing by Famous Artists Syndicate.

It measures about 3 11/16” by 4 ½” by 1” and is in nice condition. The inside pages are basically crisp with age discoloration and minor edge wear and the spine is generally tight. The cover has good color and some edge wear, especially the corners. The cover is also slightly curved and the back cover has a crease down the center.

The pictures are not shown at actual size. Please refer to the description for actual measurements.
