Rare 1st Edition - The Raggedies in Fairyland - Harrison Cady Art
We have offered here a Rare and Only 1st Edition of Sherman Ripley's " The Raggedies in Fairyland". This one is a sequel tale of hinged and animated animals, which is illustrated by Harrison Cady of Thornton Burgess fame. This one was published in 1930 by Rand McNally & Co. Due to the Great Depression, the publishers were cutting back, so this volume only has three color plates with one pasted on the cover of the book. Another result was fewer of the books being printed, which makes this one hard to find. There are also many black and white illustrations throughout the book, and red and white end pages. The book is 96 pages long and in very good condition for the age. There are two pages which have been slightly torn, and light edge and corner wear. A fabulous and collectible vintage Children's Book
