Tenggren, Gustaf (Illustrator). Bedtime Stories (Little Golden Book #2, First Printing)
Simon & Schuster, New York, 1942. First Edition.

Binding: Hardcover. Book Condition: Very Good- Condition. Size: 7.5"-8" - Small Octavo (Sm. 8vo). 42 pages. Item Type: Book.

A decent, though not perfect, copy of the first printing of the second of the Little Golden Books in its original blue spine. (The trademark gold spine was originally only printed on the dust jacket.) The back cover is Style #1 – Rabbit reading & first 12 books.

The text block is tight and unmarked, except for a Dick Tracy stamp that has been added to the Mother Goose characters on the title page. Apparently two of the leaves (at the end of "Chicken Little" and beginning of "The Three Bears") was not trimmed when the book was bound, so that they had to be cut, resulting in a bit of a ragged page edge. Solid blue spine over heavy paper-covered cardboard. Some wear at the tips of the corners. It appears the bottom 2" of the rear hinge split, but it has been neatly repaired with paper tape. No foxing in this copy. The name of the child and gift-giver has been written in pencil in an adult hand on the inside front cover. The page edges are generally clean, neat and free of foxing, except for a 1" stain on the top page edge.
