KING, Jessie M.

KING, Jessie M. The Little White Town of Never Weary Written and Illustrated by Jessie M. King

Harrap, 1917.

First edition. 4to. Brown cloth with gilt spine lettering and illustrations in brown and black. In the rare original dustwrapper, with design printed in yellow and white. Pictorial title page with Jessie King illustration in black and yellow. Four tipped in colour plates mounted onto green art paper. Many diagrams and drawings in the text, plus sixteen black and white photographs of King's creations by Bruce Cameron. A very good copy of the book, in a good dustwrapper, which is bright, with design mainly complete, though sadly with an inch deep chip to the top of the spine. This is the only appearance of the dustwrapper artwork.

This book came about when Jessie King showed a photograph of a dolls' house she had made to her editor. She presents a fairy tale type story, telling how a bored Miriam sets about making the components of a little white town out of card and material.
