The Wood That Came Back.

Leighton, Clare (illus.)

Poughkeepsie, NY: Artists & Writers Guild, 1935. First American edition. Clare Leighton's children's story narrates the vengeance of a forest and all its creatures after a couple cuts it down in order to build a house. Leighton's woodcuts are here more cartoonish than in her "adult" work, but nevertheless bear the hallmarks of one of Britain's most prolific illustrators and commercial aritsts of the early twentieth century. Bound in pictorial wrappers. Some soiling to exterior, including a crease to the upper cover, and text block starting from glued spine. Very good. Item #31253

Price: $250.00
