Digger the Badger Decides to Stay, by Thorton W. Burgess.
Published 1928, New York by John. H. Eggers Co. Issued for the Macy's Department store Bunnyland event of Easter, 1928 in NYC.
12 pages counting wrapper covers. Text in English. Illustrated by Harrison Cady.
Publisher's pictorial thin cardstock paper folded into panels, saddle stitched, printed on both sides.
Not to be confused with the much more common hardback book, this version is an ephemeral reduction of that book into a near comic book format and given away by this major New York City department store.
Item is old and shows some signs of handling and time. Item is not new or in "new" condition.
Paper gently age worn, slight rubbing, small chip on rear cover top edge, remains overall clean and attractive as a fragile survival.
Paper is lightly toned, signs of handling, small scattered spotting, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.
Still attractive on the shelf. The scarce pamphlet displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, any age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
Please review photos for more detail and our best attempt to convey how this early 20th century color juvenile promo survives.
