WALLY WANDEROON and His Story-Telling Machine.

WALLY WANDEROON and His Story-Telling Machine.

Illustrated by Karl Moseley. New York: McClure, Phillips & Co., 1903. 8 pp undated ads. Original beige cloth pictorially decorated in black, red and green.

First Edition, first issue (with the eight pages of ads) of this large-format children's book. This collection of interconnected tales includes some in Uncle Remus-style dialect, one being about Brer Rabbit hisself; there are 32 full-page illustrations. Between 1894 and 1903, Harris wrote three pairs of large-format volumes of tales, for children: this is the final one of those six (the only one illustrated by Karl Moseley), and its predecessor and mate was PLANTATION PAGEANTS (1899).

This is an unusually clean copy for such a light-colored binding -- just about fine, with the merest hint of wear at some corners. Blanck 7152. Item #14759
