Another Beautifully Illustrated Book to Tempt You…

ArabianNights-cvr ArabianNights-endpapers ArabianNights-inside



I just got in a beautifully illustrated edition of the Arabian Nights: Grosset & Dunlap Illustrated Junior Library, 1946. Illustrations by Earle Goodenow.

Above are some samples of what this looks like. I adore this volume!

As well as the color interior illustrations, there are b&w illustrations scattered throughout, right in the text.

Surely someone wants this beauty. I’m pricing it at $30.00 plus shipping (Media Mail = $3.30, Priority = $5.95).

It’s in Fine condition, with the exception of a light penciling of a name on the bottom edge of the pages (when closed), which reads “JJ Oelsner” (one guesses the child who owned this originally). Tight binding, crisp pages, slight wear to the spine from handling, no fading or coloration changes. All in all a terrifically preserved book for its age and considering it’s a kid’s book.

Leave me a comment if you want this baby!
