1st American edition published 1935, New York by Random House.
c. 44 pages. Text in English. Profusely illustrated throughout.

Publisher's illustrated paper covered boards, King book has cloth spine (now well age spotted).

Lot is physically old and shows some signs of handling and time. Lot is not new or in "new" condition.

Bindings gently age worn, joints slightly worn and scuffed, each remains overall attractive as an object.

Text block paper is gently toned, early owners name written in marker at top of end papers, bindings slightly loose from reading, internally still well preserved, tight, sound.

Still attractive on the shelf. Lot 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 nice vintage pair of classic children's books survives.

Books Measures c. 11 1/4" H x 8 1/2" W.
