Madeline’s Christmas.

BEMELMANS, Ludwig.

$300.00

Item Number: 21044

New York: McCall's, 1956.

First appearance of Madeline’s Christmas, a special insert in the 1956 Christmas edition of McCall’s Magazine. 12 mo, original wrappers as issued. In very good condition with some light wear to the rear panel.

Madeline joined the company of story immortals in 1939, when Bemelmans introduced the lion-hearted French child to the world. Madeline's magical adventures on Christmas Eve first appeared in this scarce, fragile form; the hardcover first edition was not published until 1985. "Madeline's Christmas shares the qualities of the other Madeline classics: enchanting Parisian settings, madcap action, fanciful and wacky rhyme and, of course, the incomparable Madeline herself" (Viking Publication Announcement).
