THE HAPPY DAY - Early Printing

By Krauss, Ruth; Simont, Marc (pictures by)

Paris: Harper & Brothers, 1949. HC. very good w/good dustjacket (hardcover). B&W illustrations. This copy comes from the estate of Ursula Nordstrom that I purchased in the late 1990s, and am just getting to catalog. Ursula was the editor in chief of the Harper & Row childrens department from 1940-1973. The first edition of this title has the Harper & Brothers imprint, and later editions Harper & Row. This copy has two rubber stamps "Juvenile Department - Library Copy - Do Not Remove." Ursula obviously brought this early copy home. The differences between this copy, and the true First Edition I have are as follows: $2.50 price on jacket; paper covered boards BUT with a black cloth spine. Most interesting with this copy (1949 on title page) is the bio of Marc Simont on the back dustjacket flap now includes, "winner of the 1956 Caldecott Award..." An interesting bibliographic difference. Images happily provided. unpaginated.
