The Little Golden ABC


Another Little Golden Book for you today, another purchase from the antique mall.  This one is in lovely condition.  Just a letter A drawn in pencil on the front cover, and a pencil line on the title page.  The pages are very thin and yellow, though, so I opted to photograph this one, rather than scan it.  I don't know much about Cornelius DeWitt, the illustrator, other than the fact he illustrated quite a few books for Golden Press during this time period.  I think the pictures in this simple alphabet book are quite charming.  So without further ado, here is The Little Golden ABC, published by Golden Press, 1953.

    1. I couldn't find anything about him, but I found pictures of some of his other books for Golden. This one looks impressive!

  3. I've said it before and I'll say it again - it's soooo nice to find people who love Little Golden Books/vintage children's books like I do! :)

  4. This was one of my favorite golden books to read with my kids, who wore it out. I need to find another one! (It was pretty well-loved by my husband's family before I saw it. I didn't even know what the cover looked like until now."
