Sacramento, CA: Jo Anderson, 1914. Mary Crete Crouch. First edition. Hardcover. Tight-bound, short 4to, unpaginated. The tips are bumped as are the head and tail of the spine. There are a few scuffs and small stains, front and back. There is a gift inscription on the second title page dated 1938 from Gram. The color plates are all crisp and clean and there are many fun and funny black and white drawings. One page has some small brown scuffs which do not interfere with the story. Very Good / good except as noted. Item #17574
The blue cloth cover is rather unprepossessing considering the excellent quality of the interior illustrations and wonderful stories of fairies and other denizens of the twilight. Interestingly, the first story, The Gift of the Gods, is about an Indian child at Lake Tahoe followed by many other lovely poems and prose. A rarely found book in excellent shape - quite collectible.
