Item specifics

Title: A Wonder Book Topic: Fairy Tales & Fantasy
Author: Hawthorne Special Attributes: Illustrated
Binding: Hardcover Origin: American
Subject: Children's

ca 1920 ~ A Wonder Book ~ Nathaniel Hawthorne HC Arthur Rackham Illustrated NICE


 Here is a vintage hard cover children's book entitled "A Wonder Book", by Nathaniel Hawthorne. Illustrated by Arthur Rackham. Published by Garden City Publishing Company of Garden City, New York. There is no date of publication in the book. The preface, by the author, is dated at Lenox, July 15, 1851. I read that the first US edition was in 1919 with another publisher, so this is after that date.

The book has six stories ~

The Gorgon's Head

The Golden Touch

The Paradise of Children

The Three Golden Apples

The Miraculous Pitcher

The Chimaera


There should be seven color illustrations in the book, but there are only three present, plus the cover. The illustrated cover has wear, especially on the cover corners. The top and bottoms of the cloth spine has soiling and wear. The pages of the book have darkened, and there are a few light smudges here and there, as it was read by a child. There is a tiny stain at the bottom corner of several pages.

The original owners name is written inside the front cover ~ Paul Estaver, of Newton Centre, Massachusetts.

The book has 207 pages, plus several blank pages.  measures 6 1/2" x 9".
This would make a nice addition to your early children's book collection.
