About This Item

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1939. First Edition. Very Good+/Near Fine. First edition, first printing with dated title page. Bound in publisher's decorated paper covered boards. Very Good or better, with covers showing toning, soiling and rubbing at extremities; small stain to front cover. Pages toned, and lightly thumbed. In a Near Fine dust jacket with publisher's price of $2.00 intact, though with old revised price sticker above the printed price, light edge wear and toning, though still a very bright example. An uncommonly nice copy.

Synopsis

A Caldecott Honor Book Madeline truly needs no introduction. An enduring classic,  Madeline  continues to enchant readers more than seventy years after its first publication. Nothing frightens Madeline—not tigers, not mice, not even getting sick. To Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a grand adventure.
