Details:

1. Vintage Book: A Day in the Jungle, 1943
Written by Janette Sebring Lowrey, Illustrated by Tibor Gergely, Published by Simon & Schuster, NY.

Book details: Cover and exterior are in good vintage condition, with some creasing on the front cover; spine is strong. Gorgeous, full-color and black-and-white illustrations throughout; colors are saturated and lovely; I was very tempted to cut out some of the illustrations and frame them, they are so great. (Animals featured: mice, tigers, birds, owls, elephants, wolves, rhino, panther, etc.) Interior pages in near-immaculate condition, especially for a book this age; the one exception is a 1 1/2 inch tear on the title page that someone fixed with tape. A treasure of a book, and I will hate to see it go! The book remains unsigned in the interior cover.

2. Your choice of Oiseaux vintage bookplates. You may choose from personalized sets or blank mixed sets, it's up to you. Please let me know in the "notes to seller" area which design you'd like and what your personalization request is. Each set contains 24 bookplates.

3. An "I love to Read" mini-print/postcard, suitable for framing. Adorable in a child's room propped up on a shelf, or sent to your favorite book lover. Also doubles as a bookmark.

::: PLEASE NOTE :::
These are not "perfect" books; they are "perfectly vintage" and most of them come with the worn, rounded corners of a well-loved book. Sometimes there are minor rips, tears, little pencil marks or scribbles; I will try to note any obvious quirks, but I may miss some. Please understand that you are purchasing an old book with a history, a beautiful patina, and the wonderful smell of old libraries. Book & Bookplate Sets cannot be returned; I am happy to answer any questions you have prior to ordering. These books are charming, and so happy to be given a second life with the perfect someone!
