Pleasant Tragedies of Childhood (In Printed Dustjacket and Publisher's Box)

New York: Harper & Brothers, 1905. Fanny Cory. Cloth. A lovely copy of the October 1905 1st edition. Tight and Fine in its light-blue cloth, with immaculate gilt-titling along the front panel and spine. And in a crisp, Near Fine example of the uncommon, printed glassine dustjacket, with very light creasing and just a touch of chipping along the panel edges. Octavo, verses by Burges Johnson, lovely tinted black-and-white illustrations --with figural color bordering-- by Fanny Cory (who's also known for her L. Frank Baum illustrations). Also includes a sturdy, well-preserved example of the publisher's printed box, which no doubt accounts for the book's beautiful condition. Fine / Near Fine. Item #16495
