This delightful children's book is a tale of Janos Andy who sold his violin to pay his passage to America. He arrives in America with high spirits and the desire to marry a real princess. In New York Janos overcomes enormous obstacles and overcomes them with Chaplinesque innocence. Read on about how he finally obtains a violin and how his dreams come true. The book, which is a stated First Edition, has a 1972 copyright date. It was published by Harp3er & Row and illustrated by Ezra Jack Keats. What a wonderful and inspiring tale!
This book is in very good condition with no damage to note. The pages are clean, not discolored, and have no tears or writing. There is an inscription on the front end-paper (see picture). The dust jacket has some minor tears along the edge and some is missing at the spine. Overall an outstanding copy of this vintage book.
