Description:
1934. BRUNHOFF, Jean de. A.B.C. de Babar. [48] pp. Illustrated throughout in colour. 8vo., 210 x 162 mm, bound in original publisher's decorated boards, decorated endpapers, in a new yellow cloth folding box. Paris: Editions du Jardin des Modes, 1934. First Edition. A number of Babar's friends may be seen herein among the A.B.C.'s, including Céleste, Coco, and Cornélius. Below the "Liste des mots à trouver" Babar says: "Félicitations de Babar à tous les lecteurs qui trouveront d'autres mots." Very minor signs of use, but overall a fine copy of a delightful children's A.B.C., and one of the scarcest Babar books. This work remained unknown to Hürlimann, and only seven copies of it are recorded in American libraries on OCLC.Slight wear, but in general a fine copy of a scarce book.

Description:
New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1935. Boards. Near Fine/Very Good +. Jean De Brunhoff. A very impressive copy of the 1935 correct 1st American edition, translated from the original French by Merle Haas and published by Harrison Smith and Robert Haas (not the more common Random House re-issue). Tight and Near Fine, with very light soiling to the rear panel. Internally immaculate, with the rich illustrations in bright, vivid color and with no writing or markings of any kind. And in an unusually crisp, price-intact ($3.00), VG+ example of the elusive pictorial dustjacket. Very light, occasional soiling at the dustjacket's panels, several tiny closed tears along the top-edges. Folio, the 3rd title in this beloved series about "the most famous little elephant in the world". The nicest copy this bookseller has seen.

Description:
New York: Harrison Smith and Robert Haas, 1933. Near fine. First printing of the first edition in English of the first Babar book, reproducing the author's own color illustrations - an exceptionally nice copy. Published in the distinctive large - some might say elephant-sized - format of the French original, this edition introduced an English speaking audience to the international sensation. As Anita Silvey notes, Jean de Brunhoff's original inspiration came from his wife, who told stories about a little elephant to their children. Silvey also quotes Maurice Sendak in saying that the Babar books "forever changed the face of the illustrated book." An absolute classic, very scarce in this condition. 14.25'' x 10.25''. Original quarter light blue cloth, orange pictorial paper boards. Green pictorial endpapers. Illustrated by de Brunhoff in color on nearly every page. Translated by Merle Haas. 48 pages. Publisher's promotional slip laid in. Bookplate of Joe. E. Kennedy, designed by Rockwell Kent, on… Read more
