"The Book of Courage" by Hermann Hagedorn, illustrated by Frank Godwin, published circa 1933 by the John C Winston Company.

Octavo in decorated blue cloth wrapped boards, illustrated end papers, cloth head and tail band in binding, pictorial paste down on front board, black white drawings throughout, some on glossy pages, glossy color frontispiece and title pages, 423 pages.


This is a "very good" vintage hardcover with an intact but slightly weakened binding. The hinges are intact, not split. Aside from an Xmas gift inscription in the front, no other writing apparent. No loose, torn or folded pages. The text block closes tightly and is square, with pages 357-371 lower corners tip crimped. Upper text block edge is tanned, other edges less so. The board corners are mildly bumped, with some wear at the very tips, but not worn through. The spine head and heel are bumped with some edge wear, but no frayed.

A nice, substantial and handsome vintage volume. Will make for a pleasing-to-the-eye addition to your shelf or mantle.

Will ship promptly, carefully packaged, fully insured.
