Greenaway, Kate; music by Myles B. Foster.  
A Day in a Child's Life.

Publisher: London: George Routledge & Sons, No date [1881]..
First Edition Small hardcover quarto. Green cloth spine with light green paper covered beveled boards. 29 [30] pages illustrated in color. A collection of songs with delightful illustrations on every page. Schuster & Engen, 66. This copy differs with their first state in the following ways: this copy has beveled boards, called for in a later state but not the first; this copy has off white endpapers, not light green as called for in the first state; this copy notes the publisher's London address on the title page while this is not noted in Schuster. However, Thomson, 31a, does include the publisher's address and beveled boards in the first state. So, this copy's is variant only with respect to the color of the endpapers (green in all four states noted by Thomson). ". it was in this book that Kate Greenaway first showed her full power as a painter of flowers." Osborne, p. 63. All edges green and sunflower decorated boards with ruled borders as called for in first state making this clearly earlier than the fourth state noted by Schuster. A remarkably well preserved copy with covers lightly worn at extremities, and inside edges of the pastedowns just a little faded. Interior clean, binding completely sound, text just slightly toned. Very nice. Hardcover Hardcover Very Good+

Harris, Joel Chandler w/illus. by Oliver Herford  
Aaron in the Wildwoods

Publisher: Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1898 (1897)..

His mentor, literary plantation owner Joseph Addison Turner, who published the newspaper The Countryman from his Turnwold Plantation near Eatonton, Georgia, managed to get Harris a deferment from service in the Confederate army, something of an historical question mark/sore point in Harris life. He is most famous for his Uncle Remus stories, which made him second only to his friend Mark Twain in popularity as an American writer at the turn of the 20th century. Harris died in 1908, a couple of years before Twain. This book of children's stories features 24 marvelous llustrations by the Anglo-American artist Oliver Herford (1863-1935).

Andy Buckram's Tin Men
 Picture
Publisher: New York 1966.
Good+ in Good dust jacket; Pockets and date slips removed, with resulting paper stuck to endpapers, both front and rear. Dust jacket is in mylar sleeve which is taped to book with the usual tape damage to pages. Part of back jacket flap was cut away to make room for pocket. Stamp on back paste-down has been inked over, as has the one on the title page, and the ink on title page has leaked to the next page a bit. There is also a library stamp on the fore edge, which, fortunately, they forgot to ink over. Wish they had also forgotten to ink over the stamp on the top edge. As far as I can tell without untaping the mylar sleeve, the outside dust jacket is very good except for what might be a small closed tear on the bottom edge and some library labels taped to the mylar sleeve. The library binding is very strong and the pages are all secure and clean except as noted above. Viking Second Printing Hardcover Ex-Library; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 192 pages; Andy Buckram built four tin robots from tin cans, bits of metal and other odds and ends. He gave each a name and special personality. One was a girl -- the rest were male. They were his only mechanical toys and he loved to play with them. One night a terrible storm flooded the countryside, destroying Andy's home and electrifying his robots. Before Andy knew it, he found himself in a leaky boat headed for a deserted island with his four robots, his young friend Sparrow, and his baby cousin as fellow passengers. A remarkable series of adventures follow.

[Anna Sewell]; illustrated by John R. Neill.  
Black Beauty (Little Lame Prince).

Publisher: Chicago: Reilly & Britton, 1908..
First Edition thus 12mo, about 7 inches tall, in red paper covered boards decorated in gray and black with a circular color pastedown. One of the publisher's "Children's Red Books" series, this being the fourth. The "Little Lame Prince" is not noted on the cover or title page. 58 pages plus 3 pages of publisher ads. Illustrated by 16 full page color plates (8 in each story) by John R. Neill, best known for his work on Baum's Oz books. A relatively cheaply made series so it is unusual to find these in good condition. This one is quite nice with a bit of light edge wear and minor fading to the spine ends. The inside is clean, bright and sound. The scarce dustjacket is quite degraded but the cover isn't bad: chips and pieces missing from the front panel amounting to perhaps 2 square inches; the spine is missing about 2 inches from the bottom; the rear panel is missing a large piece - about 20% of the total; the rear flap is missing entirely.
