Blashfield (and Blashfield’s little angels are worth the price of the book.) Hard cover, with an excellent frontispiece.  240 pages. First edition, first printing. Pages are very heavy rag stock paper. Every page is clean and clear. Binding is perfect. Edges of the pages still have the gilt edging!  Cover shows minor shelf wear, especially at the edges.

(Sorry about the price. I used to be able to offer this book for $36.00. But, collectors have discovered the charm of Fannie Farmer’s Catering for Special Occasions, and copies are becoming almost impossible to find.)
