An Outstanding copy of a 20th century classic, very rare in the first issue, more so in such nice condition. This book was a 1929 Newbery Honor Book.

EX LIBRIS NOTE: The bookplate is from Hiram Edmund Deats library .... (1870–1963), of Flemington, New Jersey, was a philatelist especially acclaimed for his collection of revenue stamps Deats formed one of the finest libraries of philatelic books and literature in the United States, which, in 1952, he donated to the Free Library of Philadelphia. This adds considerable value to the book.

*NOTE: Millions Of Cats is considered the first true picture book. (please see Children's Picture book Price Guide, Chapter 1, Today's Golden Era Of Picture books; Development And Evolution of the Picture book Market; Beginning of the Modern Picture book.)
