Description

Super nice Nursery Tales Little Golden Book from 1945, illustrated by Masha, in original US War Bonds dust jacket! These books rarely come with the jacket, and this one is in fabulous condition.

Originally published in 1943, this is a stated third printing from June 1945, which means it has the scarce “Buy US War Savings Stamps and Bonds” dust jacket flaps. Also with the original price of 25 c on the jacket. Includes Tom Thumb, the Elves and the Shoemaker, Three Billy Goats Gruff, Rapunzel, and The Golden Goose.

The books has beautiful colorful illustrations by Masha throughout, and is in near fine condition with a small chip at bottom of front cover as shown. The dust jacket, miraculously, is also in near fine condition, bright and clean with just a little splitting at ends of flap folds. A rare survivor!
