48pp. Original decorative paper (Little Lord Fauntleroy style boys digging through a basket of peaches printed in at least four colors) ovr light blue cloth which is stamped in green. Illustrated with 27 illustrations, either as b+w plates or in text. The very fragile and scarce jacket is present, but in pieces. This was part of the Dainty Series by Altemus and was #13 in the series. The back panel of the jacket lists 25 titles in the series, so this is NOT a first edition. The jacket is preserved in a mylar protector. The jacket may be identified as the Sternick Format 5 jacket, which is considered a later jacket. It is printed in color and has an older girl walking with her Fauntleroyesque little brother down a road. The spine of the jacket is missing, but both flaps and both panels are present, albeit heavily browned, chipped at the edges and dampstained at the bottom of the back panel. Top corners bumped, binding lightly soiled. Some dampstain to the bottom of the back board. Offsetting to the endpapers from the jacket flaps. Some smudging to the margins. Size: 12mo - over 6 - 7" tall
