First edition, first printing of this first hand account of the people and cultures from the time when both Dalgliesh and Milhous visited the South American countries.
Very good plus.
This copy was once in the inventory of Aleph-Bet Books, and the description uses their images; if you would like further photos of the book, please contact us.
New York: Charles Scribner's Sons, 1941. 9.5'' x 7''. Original cloth. Slight fading on covers. In original, soiled dust jacket. Illustrated with beautiful full page color illustrations plus black and whites by Katherine Milhous. Laid in is an interesting card from Dalgliesh: "It was so nice of you to write about the Author's Award dinner, and I was most interested. I'm glad Scott O'Dell got the award - and the others too. Of course I'm most of all pleased about Leo [Politi] - especially as Moy Moy was the last book I worked on with him. Last night I had dinner with May Massee, and she was very pleased about the Buffs. I wonder what Frances thought about Phantom Tollbooth. I have not received it, though there has been great publisher pressure to do so. With best wishes, Sincerely Alice Dalgliesh."
