61 Musson, Louise Walbridge FRAU VON COLSON'S CHRISTMAS EVE
Kansas City, MO The Rust-Craft Shop 1908 First Edition Softcover Signed by Author
SIGNED. This is a lovely small softcover Christmas Eve book. Inscribed, dated and signed by the author. The copyright date, Foreword date, and ink date by the author is 1908. The cover is a simple paper with a christmas tree design, title and author name within a border. The type has been hand set with a decorative devise preceding each chapter. The interior is fine, but this delicate book has some chipping on the art paper jacket as well as some over all faint soiling as if from fireplace smoke with a dime size circular spot on the back of the jacket. The jacket is glued to the spine and on the flaps - as designed. There is some browning on the tips of the pages. There are no other marks or writing. IInterior fine. The flaws of the jacket are deflected because of a lightweight mylar cover to contain the chipping effect. The story ends with lyrics of a lullaby. Charming little book. ; 8vo; 53 pages; Signed by Author
