Details:

1. The Big Brown Bear, 1947
Written by Georges Duplaix, Pictures by Gustaf Tenggren, Published by Simon and Schuster, NY

Book details: Cover and exterior are in good vintage condition, with minor wear on both, a small amount of peeling on the spine and the expected rounded corners. Spine is very strong. Interior is stunningly clean and fresh, with full-color illustrations throughout, and the pictures are hilarious. The typography in this book is gorgeous. Interior pages have a tiny bit of foxing at the corners, and a small smudge on the top corner of the last page. The book was signed by someone on the interior cover in blue ink and then covered with white paper, so the name is illegible; it was then inscribed with "Emily, Erin, Jack" in green ink. This is a super sweet book.

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!
