Holiday Time on Butternut Hill by Harrison Cady.
Published c. 1929, Racine, Wisconsin by Whitman Publishing Co.
24 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout.
Publisher's paper covered color lithographed boards binding, retains original pictorial dust jacket.
Book is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Book is not new or in "new" condition.
Binding gently age worn, text block is slightly loosened from covers due to publisher's weak 2 staple spine attachment method used, mostly light or inoffensive signs of handling and time but nothing severe or unsightly, book remains overall attractive as an object. Dust jacket is colorful and attractive but has small-ish chips at spine ends and at rear cover lower corner.
Paper is gently toned, still clean, tight, sound internally.
Overall seems nicer than typical for juvenile items of this era. What a great artist Cady was, a really wonderful illustration style throughout. Bumping up against early comic book style production.
Still attractive on the shelf. The book displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in overall nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws which may be present seem easy to overlook or forgive.
