1957. Item #16781
Wyndham, Lee. The Lost Birthday Present. NY: Dodd, Mead, 1957. 58p, many ills. by Paul Brown. Fair hardcover. Ex-lib. with all marks. The jacket (hard to find in any condition) is taped to the endpapers. Owner's neat ink stamp in two places. Ink scribbling on three pages plus rear endpapers. A sturdy copy. ** One of Brown's last books, a children's picture story about an appealing Sicilian donkey that goes astray on a cross-country train trip. Not a collector's copy that you need to keep on the top shelf--let the kids enjoy it! Lee Wyndham (author of many ballet books) was the pen name of Jane Lee Hyndman. Can be sent outside the U.S. for less than the default shipping rate.
