Goodnight Moon
Brown, Margaret Wise

Harper & Row

Illustrated in color by the author. (Oblong 8vo) , original green cloth-backed color pictorial boards.

Margaret Wise Brown's classic bedtime story. The true first edition, printed in 1947 with "Harper & Brothers" on the title page, is all but unobtainable; early editions printed in 1947 but with "Harper & Row" on the title page, such as the present copy, are almost as rare.

Lot Amendments
Some soiling and edgewear to boards; hinges partly cracked but stable, ΒΌ" closed tear to one page, no markings; very good.
