Product description

Pets and Playmates (Birn Brothers, c.1940s) - vintage children's picture story book
 
This scarce original c.1940s vintage book for young children, with attractive pictorial board covers showing a little girl in dungarees sitting on a wall with a rabbit and dog against a dark green background (the same picture appears on the front and back covers, with the title to the front cover only), contains stories and poems plus several black and white and some two-tone illustrations; as the title implies, animals feature prominently in the contents.
 
The original colour frontispiece (which would have been opposite the title page) is regrettably missing from this copy, and there are various signs of age (see condition description below); however, since the book remains fully legible and otherwise in generally good order, it would still make a lovely addition to a collection of vintage children's literature, or a great display accessory for a recreation of a room setting of the period.
