Description:
New York: The Viking Press, 1938. Early printing of Munro Leaf's beloved children's classic. Octavo, original half cloth, illustrated endpapers. Boldly signed by Munro Leaf on the title page. Near fine in a very good dust jacket. Illustrated by Robert Lawson. "This is perhaps one of the finest 20th-century examples of the inspired wedding of a text and illustrations to make a children’s book that as a whole is even greater than the sum of its parts-which are in themselves very fine indeed. The simple, delightful Leaf story about a Spanish bull who prefers the fragrance of flowers to the roar of the bull-ring is lovingly illustrated by Robert Lawson. The overworked word ‘classic’ is well deserved here. Children have adored The Story of Ferdinand ever since the book was published" (Early Children’s Books and Their Illustrations). Translated into over 60 languages, Munro Leaf's classic became a number one bestseller in 1938 and has never gone out of print since.… Read more
