We are presenting a wonderful, large vintage music book. It is "The New Illustrated Book of Favorite Hymns". The book is a First Edition with copyright date of 1941. The book is beautifully illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren who was a Swedish-American illustrator. Tenggren was a chief illustrator for The Walt Disney Company in the late 1930's, in what has been called the Golden Age of American Animation. This period was when animated feature films such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Fantasia, Bambi and Pinocchio were produced.
This wonderful book of hymns features several beautiful colored lithographs by Tenggren. The book contains 44 pages and includes an Index in the back. The music in the book of hymns are "simplified piano arrangements" by Inez Bertail.
The book measures approximately 13" X 10-1/2" X 3/8" (at the binding). It is in very good condition with wear noted to the cover, particularly the edges. There is also a tear inside the front cover (see photograph) and writing in pencil on one of the music pages. There is no dust jacket.
