Kernel Cob and Little Miss Sweetclover

“WHAT WONDERFUL DOLLS THEY WERE, AND WHAT WONDERFUL THINGS THEY DID”

MITCHEL, George. Kernel Cob and Little Miss Sweetclover. Illustrated by Tony Sarg. New York, Chicago and Toronto: P.F. Volland, (1918). Octavo, original stiff paper pictorial boards, pictorial endpapers, original cardboard box. $1800.

First edition, a lovely copy in the original illustrated box.

Part of Volland’s “Happy Children Books” series-to which Johnny Gruelle’s Raggedy Ann and Andy books also belonged-Mitchel’s toy fantasy chronicles the adventures of a doll made from flowers and a soldier fashioned from an ear of corn. Guatemalan-born Sarg is remembered for not only illustrating children’s books but also reviving marionette theater in America. He also developed helium-filled character balloons for Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parades. Cotsen 7362.

Book exceptionally fine, scarce original box in extraordinary condition, with one closed tear. A beautiful copy in fine condition.
