Osa Johnson's Jungle Friends (With Ephemera)

by Mrs. Martin Johnson

Condition: Near Fine/Very Good


Philadelphia: J.B. Lippincott Company, 1939. Cloth. Near Fine/Very Good. WARMLY INSCRIBED BY OSA JOHNSON (the inscription taking up most of the half-title page). A very solid copy to boot of the 1939 stated 3rd impression. Clean and Near Fine in a crisp, price-intact, VG dustjacket, with light creasing (and one piece of clear tape) across the front panel's top-edge and very light chipping to the spine ends and the tips. Still though, a very presentable copy. Octavo, also includes a folded 1 pg sheet called "Osa Johnson's Jungle Pets", with a wonderful photo of Osa posing with a number of "Jungle Pet" toys here being offered for sale.
