We are pleased to offer another wonderful vintage children's book. It is "Piccolino" by Marian King, Pictures by Nell Stolp Smock. This is a hardbound book with dust jacket. It is a First Edition, published in 1939 by Albert Whitman and Company, Chicago.
This is a charming story about a little donkey in Sicily. His master is the little boy, Micco. Marian King, the author, spent time on the island of Sicily, gathering material for her story.
The book has 32 pages and there are many wonderful lithographed illustrations both in color and black and white.
The book is in good condition with a few stains on a few of the pages, but nothing that interferes with the story or illustrations. There is some wear to the dust jacket as you can see in the photographs.
A rare find and a wonderful book for the collector!
