The Swiss Family Robinson

Vintage Childrens Literature from the Beautiful Illustrated Junior Library Copyright 1949

This wonderful childrens classic from the Time Keeper Cottage Library has a set of lovely bright colored illustrations as well as black and white drawings through out the story. The colors are very rich and each plate is on a backless page. The interior pages are very clean with sharp corners and edges. All ink is clear and spine binding is tight.

The hardback cover had damage around the edges but the boards are firm. The fabric cover is bright in some places and very light faded on the spine and bottom corners. The interior covers have that wonderful watercolor art work that so many books had during that time period.

Grosset and Dunlap were based in New York but this book was printed in Kingsport, Tenn.

There are 377 pages of delightful reading that spurs the imagination of children and adults alike. There are no markings inside.
