Details:

1. Vintage Book: The Taxi That Hurried, 1946
Written by Lucy Sprague Mitchell, Irma Simonton Black, and Jessie Stanton, Illustrated by Tibor Gergely, Published by Simon & Schuster, NY.

Book details: Rare "Blue Spine" Little Golden Book. Cover and exterior are in amazing vintage condition, with a bump or two on the outside spine. Binding is strong and solid. Interior is pure vintage perfection with saturated, full-color and black and white illustrations; no creases, no marks, no stains. This must have been in a box in the cellar! Pages are golden with age but look more pristine than most books at your local bookstore. A treasure. This book is unsigned.

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!
