Martindale, Meredith. Tip Top. Philadelphia: International Printing Co., 1948. 45p, 11 pls. Very good hardcover in good d.j. (back creased, spotted). Neatly signed by Martindale in ink on the title page. ** Written by an 11-year-old Philadelphia girl and handsomely printed courtesy of her proud grandfather; with a preface by him. Young Denny trains Tip Top to be a jumper, and there are other predictable events such as a kidnaping and a ride to a rescue. Illustrated with the author's drawings. Uncommon: one copy in WorldCat (University of Minneapolis). Probably printed in a very small quantity.
