First Edition Little Golden Book "Let's Go Shopping with Peter and Penny" 1948 Lenora Combes story and artwork
This is a "very good" vintage Golden book, published in 1947/8, 42 pages. First edition, sporting the "A" on the back page lower edge as is the custom for Golden's of this vintage. Aside from neatly penned gift inscription (interestingly dated 1947 although copyright on the books is 1948) inside front cover, no writing, no loose, torn or folded pages. Text block is tight and square. Board corners are light lightly bumped all around. Midway through, 3 of the lower corner tips are folded over. Absolutely charming illustrations which really capture the "downtown" shopping experience of the late Forties, early Fifties - certainly a bygone era. See accompanying images for full condition details. Will make a lovely addition to your collection or as a quaint gift. Will ship promptly, carefully packaged.
