"Flicka, Ricka, Dicka and a Little Dog", by Maj Lindman, published in 1946 by Albert Whitman and Company of Chicago.10" tall vintage hardcover with red cloth wrapped boards, pictorial pastedown on front cover, decorated endpapers, full color illustrations throughout, sewn cloth binding, not paginated.This is a "very good plus" to "near fine" vintage hardcover, with a tight, crisp binding and bright, wrinkle free pages. It does not show any evidence of having been handled by a young person due to the utter lack of creasing to the pages. Board corners are crisp, unbumped with just a hint of wear to the cloth at the very tips. No writing, names or marks. Pages are as bright as they were in 1946. A truly superlative vintage book - you just don't see children's books of this vintage in this condition every day!The original dust jacket is "very good -" or better, with edge wear top and bottom. Two 1" closed tears along the back top edge and two smaller along the bottom edge. A small, thin triangular puncture at the upper edge of the illustration on the back (see accompanying images). Chipping at the flap fold corners. Original first edition publisher's price of $1.00 is visible inside the front flap. Some general surface wear and tanning. Not a perfect wrapper, but certainly better than 98% of the copies out there from this era.Will make a wonderful addition to your collection or as a very special gift for the collector in your circle!Will ship carefully packaged and fully insured.
