The True Story of Humpty Dumpty; How he was rescued by three mortal children in Make Believe Land. Anna Alice Chapin.

The True Story of Humpty Dumpty; How he was rescued by three mortal children in Make Believe Land

Macaulay Company, 1905. Betts, Ethel Franklin. First Edition. Cloth. This is the 1905 Macaulay edition, not the more common 1924 reprint. Small tear and general rubbing on front pastedown. Corners are a bit worn and there are water stains on the back cover. Hinges are nearly cracked, and there seems to be a page missing after front endpapers. This is a lovely first edition of Chapin's deliriously surreal children's story with line illustrations by Ethel Franklin Betts. Front to back nightmare fuel. Good. Item #370

Price: $85.00
