"In an old house in Paris that was covered with vines Lived twelve little girls in two straight lines...": First Edition of Ludwig Bemelmans Madeline
New York: Simon and Schuster, 1939.
First edition with the 1939 date on the title page and with 12 girls instead of 11 in the “They went home and broke their bread” illustration. Thin folio, original illustrated boards, color illustrations throughout, illustrated endpapers. Fine in a near fine dust jacket with light rubbing. A superior example of a book that is prone to wear.
