Details:

1. Vintage Book: Hansel and Gretel, 1945, rare blue binding
Story by Jacob and William Grimm, Illustrated by Erika Weihs, Published by Simon and Schuster, NY

Book details: This is one of the earliest “Blue Spine” Little Golden Books, a rare find -- perfect for the vintage Little Golden Book collector. Cover is in good vintage condition, with some rounding of corners and pale pencil marks, and a small smudge. Spine is firm. Interior is excellent, filled with adorable full-color and black and white illustrations throughout, with the pages surprisingly bright and clean for a book this old. This book has been signed twice: once in blue pen by Melissa Kessler in the “this book belongs to” area, and once in pencil by Linda Gail Brown, on the title page, dated 3/30/47.

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!
