Golden Christmas Book, The (A Big Golden Book), Crampton/Malverne, G-hc


The Golden Christmas Book (A Big Golden Book), compiled by Gertrude Crampton, illustrated by Corinne Malverne.  Simon & Schuster Publications, New York, New York (U.S.A.), (      ).  (      ).  (). White illustrated paper over boards decorated with blue edging and blue and gold stars.  Collectible hardcover children’s book in GOOD condition.

Tightly bound, but minus paper covering the spine back, and most of the joints.  Bare boards show at board corners and corresponding edges of alternate board corners.  Light rubs and soiling to board paper.  Honey-comb Christmas tree that pops up when the front cover is opened is FLAWLESS, but age-appropriate glue-stains verso page.  Also, reactions from glue applied to perimeters of illustrated endpapers (darkening to boards and sunning to pages).  Beautiful unmarked interior pages with darkening to crown edges.

Charming and highly readable example of American juvenile literature from the first half of the 20th century.  Features traditional Christmas poems, songs, and stories, as well as Christmas-themed projects.
