Virginia Lee Burton
Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel - Likely Second Printing 1939
Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1939. Near fine, clean copy of Virginia Lee Burton's classic, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. Very good dust jacket. Most likely the second printing - no date on title page as found on first printing, but has gray boards as found in early printings as opposed to salmon colored boards found in later printings. Rear dj flap also promotes Virginia Lee Burton's 'Choo Choo' as found in early printings. DJ does have tears and chips as seen in photos, but still very good condition overall. Front flap is clipped on top and bottom. Rear flap is intact. Two small brown dots on back of hardcover. Virginia Lee Burton's classic, Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel. 1939 printed on copyright page, but not tile page, so most likely a second printing. Original dust jacket with just title and abbreviation for Houghton Mifflin on spine and promotion for Burton's book, Choo Choo, on back flap. Original gray cloth boards. A beautiful, clean copy of this children's classic. No markings of any kind inside of book. Two small, brown dots on back board. Please contact me with any questions or requests for additional information or pictures. [Attributes: In Dust Jacket]
