This is a first edition of this published book with illustrations by Barbara Cooney. Note: Bambi originally was first published in 1928. Bambi, a Life in the Woods,by Felix Salten, Simon and Schuster, copyright 1970, 191 pages. It is stated first printing with a 1928 foreword by John Galsworthy on the original galley proof. The book is in wonderful, tight condition. The book jacket is not clipped but there is a diagonal cut on the bottom which is apparent in the photos. Inside the front cover is the original gold stamp from the bookseller (again, see photos). The illustrations are detailed and delicate like the timeless story itself. Would make a wonderful gift. Note: Barbara Cooney was the winner of the 1958 Caldecott Medal for the best illustrated children's book. Bambi was also a Walt Disney movie.
