Gutmann, Bessie Pease and Alice Beach Winter (illus).
New York. Hurst & Company. 1912.
2 color plates, black and white text ills throughout, unpag, 8vo (9 x 7"), pictorial paper-covered boards (hardbound). Cover is rubbed and worn, spine is split and boards are just barely attached, inscription on verso of frontispiece which has a 3 1/4 inch mended tear (ending just outside image), most b/w ills neatly colored by a former owner, but color plates are clean. A charming frontispiece by Bessie Pease Gutmann showing two girls preparing for May Day with their three dolls; the Alice Beach Winter plate shows two children perhaps on their way to school. Both these plates are marked copyright R C. Co. 1909. Cover illustration is another color illustration by Alice Beach Winter. A most unusual item. Item #28449
