Clarksburg, VA Joseph Israel 1831 First Edition Hardcover Very Good with no dust jacket 
This is a hardcover leather bound book in calf. The binding is tight with strong hinges and corners. The title on the spine is worn or missing the leather band for the title - a hint of the title remains as a blind stamp. The end papers are worn and foxed and show faint writing or ciphering as do the last two pages and end papers - names, dates, and faintly readable - pencil.. The pages of the book are uniformly age discolored with faint to heavy foxing.. The edges are darkened as are the tips of the edges - well read, but carefully handled because of the secure binding. There are three introductory chapters of 38 pages, eighteen chapters, a four page contents list in text paragraphs, and an advertisement by the publisher which is actually background information with caveats. This last page has a tear. The front end paper is missing, there is a blank leaf. At the rear, the verso of the Advertisement is blank, there is blank leaf, and end paper. There is a water line at the bottom of the rear advertisment and blank leaf. Howes W601.; 12mo; 319 pages; From 495

Racine, WI Whitman Publishing Co. 1937 First Edition Hardcover

This book, the first in the series, was published in 1935. Foo is one of the words he created. The cover is illustrated with a drawing in color of Smokey looking behind him and signalling for the others to follow him. The back cover is a dark green-black. The paper is fragile (not acid free) . There is a title page. It appears that there are supposed to be 9 pages at the rear titled "CUT-UPS FOR GROWN-UPS" Holman invites the owner of the book to do crazy little things some based on the characters in the strip. They are printed on both sides of the page. This former owner took him up on it and did cut some. Two pages being complete. , Two are missing one quarter of the page. One page was torn out and the remnants of that page are present. All the 56 pages of the black and white cartoons are present. The pages in the interior are all in near fine condition (except as satted, the cut-outs which are unrealted to the comic strips on the other pages) The end papers are clean with no marks or writing, but the fragile paper split at the interior hinges, both front and back - it was brittle and inflexible. The binding is in excellent condition. The binding is tight and sturdy. The white background of the front cover is very clean. There is a touch of wear at the corners. All in all, this book must not have been read that many times or passed around. It may have only had one owner. ; 8vo
