First edition of this charming collection of rhymes and illustrations about the delights of riding a tricycle, an unusual Sarah S. Sitwell Weber title.
Sarah S. Stilwell Weber studied under Howard Pyle at the Drexel Institute, and was one of the core members of the Brandywine School and the Plastic Club. Her vibrant figures and Art Nouveau-inspired compositions made her a popular periodical illustrator, and she created covers for THE SATURDAY EVENING POST, HARPER'S BAZAAR, COLLIER'S, and others; the work made her one of the highest-paid woman artists of her day. This beautiful book of children adventuring on their Kiddie-Kar tricycles is an example of her artistic skill, and is rare on the market in collectible condition.
