The Three Bears.
Published 1908, New York by Platt & Munk Co. Inc.
Text in English. Illustrated in color throughout.
With a rare illustrated dust jacket. Binding remains clean, tight, and sound although there is some loss at the base of the rear joint to paper of cover and the text block (confined to the wide blank margin along the gutter-likely due to insects long ago). Offered as acquired due to freshness of the book overall and the very scarce juvenile dj of this publisher/ era.
Interior contents display a pleasing age patina, largely free of age spotting.
Book remains well preserved and attractive on the shelf. It displays a pleasing and unique age patina and is in nice antiquarian condition, the age flaws easy to overlook or forgive.
