Penguin Books, Middlesex 1953. The pages are all brown tinted with age yet still is in quite good shape. This book is actually volume two from a set and begins with chapter nine: Christianity. I'm very pleased to have this as part of my collection.
Eric Carle and do have a small collection on his books with us. This one, we did not have but soon on Christmas Day, it will officially join the pack.
The inside of Ox-Cart Man. More history here. I think I'll begin collection old library cards too but I don't think I want to remove them from the books they are found in.
Elisa Trimby's favorite house on the Atlantic Coast of Cornwall England.
Campfire Girls. True to the time era, the illustrations are perfect with their white, blues, pink and corral colors. It is filled with great ideas and activities and I am sure my Brownie Girl Scout and I will make good use of it.
From one little girl to another and now to my little girl too.
She'll also enjoy that very popular book girl name of the sixties, Jane since it's her middle name.
Arthur Rackham along with Jessie Wilcox Smith.
I love pretty and patterned book cover insides.
One of my favorite illustrations in the book.
Else Holmelund Minarik and Maurice Sendak are a must for our children's library. Especially since Sendak was one of my very first favorite illustrators. This one is from 1958.
Pippi Longstocking. I think every girl should know about Pippi, don't you? :)
Beatrix Potter books missing from our small collection. The Beatrix Potter sized ones (the smaller ones as I call them) were all a part of gift for a two year old boy more than ten years ago. Now, they are ours. :)
