About This Item

New York: Simon and Schuster, 1939. First edition with the 1939 date on the title page and with 12 girls instead of 11 in the "They went home and broke their bread" illustration. Thin folio, original illustrated boards, color illustrations throughout, illustrated endpapers. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. A superior example of a book that is prone to wear.

Synopsis

To fearless Madeline, a trip to the hospital is a splendid adventure.  One of the most loved books in children’s literature, this story was a Caldecott Honor Book in 1940 and a subsequent book in the Madeline series, Madeline's Rescue , earned a Caldecott Medal in 1954. Written and illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans in 1939, Madeline has continued to charm readers throughout the years with its beautiful drawings of Paris and spirited heroine.
