"The Farmer In The Dell" was written and illustrated by Berta and Elmer Hader. This power-house couple wrote and illustrated books throughout their 50-year career. This beautiful, and very collectible book features brilliant color illustrations as well as black and white line drawings to accompany the story.
The author's forward reads, "What is a farm? How does the farmer live? To answer these questions we decided to tell in pictures the story of The Farmer in the Dell".
The hard-cover book has green cloth boards with an embossed title and design and is in good condition. There is some scuffing and bumping along the board's edges. There is shelfware and small amounts of fraying to the spine. The pages have some mild soiling in a few spots and the bright map endpaper has a crease on the inside right-hand side. The pages are otherwise clean and the binding is tight.
This is a really fabulous and collectible book for children or children at heart.
