Dallas, Texas: Neiman-Marcus, 1955.
First edition of Madeline’s Christmas in Texas, which precedes the 1956 Christmas edition of McCall’s Magazine. 12 mo, original wrappers as issued, illustrated. In near fine condition. Scarce, especially in this condition.
Madeline joined the company of story immortals in 1939, when Bemelmans introduced the lion-hearted French child to the world. Madeline's Christmas in Texas shares the qualities of the other Madeline classics with uniquely charming big Texan settings, madcap action, fanciful and wacky rhyme and, of course, the incomparable Madeline herself.
