Hard cover version of Little Sandy Sleighfoot. Story by June C. Unwin. 1957. This is a former church nursery copy. It has been used and hopefully enjoyed. The illustrations by James Alan Unwin are precious. The book is dedicated to "All Children Everywhere" at the specific request of Lt. George W. Crane IV, USMC before his death in a jet crash July 7,1956. The covers are dirty and have wear. The back cover has some glue spots with glitter stuck to the glue, I guess from the children's Christmas crafts, picture 2. The spine has much wear and missing paper and cardboard at the bottom, see picture 10. When you open the book there is a book plate from the book being presented to the church. It has 2 stamps from the church library. You can see the string binding and that it is intact. There is some give in the paper attached to the boards of the covers, see picture 11. Next is the dedication page, picture 3. The contents of the book are intact. No writing, scribbling. No tears. There are page turning dirty fingerprint marks and a few corners that were at one time folded. The last page has some yellowish age marks, picture7, that all pages have but more visible here. Nice, readable copy of a precious story. Paypal only. Continental USA only. No returns. Please feel free to ask questions prior to purchase and thank you for looking.
