"Prose and Poetry The Sunshine Book" was edited by Barbara Henderson, Marion Garretson, and Frederick Weber. Choral reading was produced by Bess Crofoot and Margaret Palen. This wonderful vintage poetry book contains original yellow, gray and black illustrations by Guy Brown Wiser. Also included are full-color reproductions of well-known artwork by artists including Igor Grabar, Alexander Brook, John Everett Millais, Diego Rivera, Correggio, and Paul Cezanne.
Poems and prose are written by well-known authors as well as the more obscure:
Frances Frost Grant Wood Clinton Scollard Robert Browning Edith Nesbit Florence M Conard Robert Louis Stevenson Hans Christian Andersen ...and many more.
This was perhaps a text book, though it has no school stamp or owner's name. There is a dictionary in the back. The vintage poetry book is in very good condition. It has yellow and gold illustrated board covers. There is some mild yellowing to the pages and a couple of pages with a chip and mild creasing just along the right edge (this may have been a printing error, but I cannot be sure). There is a small ink stain only visible when the pages are closed along the right page edges. This vintage illustrated book measures 8 1/2 inches by 5 3/4 inches and will be shipped Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
A great poetry collection for the collector or to give as a gift.
