Details:

1. The Poky Little Puppy, 1942
Written by Janette Sebring Lowrey, Illustrated by Gustaf Tenggren, Published by Simon and Schuster, NY

Book details: Cover and exterior are in good vintage condition, with minor wear on both; when I first picked up the book and looked inside I assumed this was a 1970's printing and was amazed to see its real date! This book must have spent a lot of time tucked away somewhere. The spine is very solid, and the interior is bright and fresh-looking, with both black-and-white pictures as well as full-color illustrations. There is a small dirty smudge on one page, but all other pages are clean with just a bit of foxing. The book was signed by "Clee" on the interior cover in red crayon. The Poky Little Puppy is one of the best-selling children's books of all time, and this is one is a treasure to have.

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!
