Four Doctor Dolittle books by author and illustrator Hugh Lofting. Three are 1st editions. Each book has a color frontispiece with tissue guard and each book has over 50 each illustrations that are just marvelous. The insides of all the books are clean and intact but the outside boards are in varied need of repair. All illustrations are on separate pages with no text on back of illustration. Doctor Dolittle's Circus, copyright 1924, Frederick A. Stokes Co., 1st edition, slanted spine outside color paste down good condition. Doctor Dolittle's Zoo, copyright 1925 Frederick A. Stokes Co., 1st edition, back cover is loose from book, inside clean and outside color paste down good condition. Doctor Dolittle in the Moon, copyright 1928 Frederick A. Stokes Co, 1st edition, color paste down on cover is in good condition, the spine is peeling away and loose, a blank book plate is on inside front boards states "this book belongs to". Doctor Dolittle's Post Office, copyright 1923, Frederick A. Stokes Co, 3rd printing 1923, color paste down on front cover is torn and the back cover is partially loose from book. It is difficult to find first editions of these books and would be quite a wonderful addition to a collector of children's books, particularly if you have the outside covers repaired. The insides have no folded pages, no writing and are all clean.
