“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.
