Item Details

[Baum, L. Frank- Illus. by Harry Kennedy] The Navy Alphabet

Chicago: George M. Hill Company, 1900.

First edition. Folio size lapbook. Original gray cloth spine, color pictorial paper covered boards with superb illustration on cover of sailor on a battleship, and rear cover with a steaming ship on the seas. Printed on rectos only, full-page illustrations by Kennedy on every page, headed by hand-lettered (in the print) text by Charles Costello. Stunning illustrations, a lasting rarity. An exceptional copy, about as nice as one could hope for with corner chipping and wear to very ends of boards, but covers clean and bright, and fine internally. There is no starting of either of the hinges.

Price: $2,750.00 Item #4375
