About This Item

Lippincott & Co., 1942. First edition (NAP). Black cloth spine, pictorial paper boards, decorative endsheets. With illustrations in color and B&W by Helene Carter. Other books by this author and illustrator include Where Did Your Garden Grow and The Earth Changes. Although ostensibly marketed for young readers, this very sophisticated panorama of the origins, travels and development of various fruits, with colored maps tracing their journeys around the world. Book very good with wear to edges, overall aging. Matching DJ very good with small surface tear, some loss at spine-ends, corners, folds but price intact. Please note that there was also a library binding with green cloth and not the pictorial paper boards. 72 pp.. 1st Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. Illus. by Helene Carter.
