Details:

1. Vintage Book: Prayers for Children, 1943, rare blue spine
Illustrated by Rachel Taft Dixon, Published by Simon and Schuster, NY

Book details: This is a “Blue Spine” Little Golden Book; a rare find, and perfect for the vintage Little Golden Book collector. Cover is in excellent vintage condition, with some light scratches on the spine; back cover is near-perfect. Spine is very strong. Interior is nearly pristine (this book must have been in the attic) filled with adorable full-color and black and white illustrations throughout… the children in the pictures are so cherubic! Pages are golden with age, but uncreased, with a few pages wearing very pale stains. This book remains unsigned in the interior cover. A gorgeous find.

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!
