Description:
n.p.: n.p., 1944. Fine.. Wonderfully detailed finished pencil drawing by Tenggren that appears (in reduced size) on page 87 of TENGGREN'S STORY BOOK (1944). Pictured is the emperor as child, seated at a table and contemplating an egg. Because the child cut his finger while breaking an egg, his father declared that thereafter, all eggs had to be opened at the smaller end, beginning a rebellion and a war with the empire of Blefuscu. The son is drawn very much like one of the dwarves in Snow White. A great image. 5.5'' x 6'' (image); 15'' x 15'' (frame). Single sheet, matted and framed. Not examined outside frame.

New York: Simon and Schuster, Inc, 1942. Very good plus in like dust jacket.. Rare first edition in original jacket of the all-time bestselling hardcover children's book, one of the first 12 Little Golden Books. A combination of color, durability, and affordability drove the publication of the first series of 12 Little Golden Books in 1942. But their success was at first uncertain: Steve Santi describes how librarians felt that the series was not "the quality literature that a child should be reading." Parents, however, felt differently; at 25¢, the Little Golden Books were the cheapest and most attractive children's books available at the time, and 1.5 million copies were printed in five months to meet the demand. "Prior to World War II, large format classic storybooks for children were prohibitively expensive and available only to a privileged few," the Smithsonian American History Museum notes; books like THE POKY LITTLE PUPPY "revolutionized" the way American families used books by putting the… Read More
