The Matchlock Gun
New York: Dodd, Mead & Company,, 1941. Illustrated by Paul Lantz. Square octavo. Original natural hessian cloth, spine and front cover lettered in brown, pictorial endpapers. With the dust jacket. 6 double-page colour plates, monochrome illustrations throughout by Paul Lantz. A few nicks and chips to jacket, back panel lightly soiled. An excellent copy . First edition, first printing. Winner of the 1942 Newbery Medal, Walter D, Edmonds's "stirring story of young American courage" (jacket blurb) - as a a family defend their home during the French and Indian Wars - would have resonated with a country recently committing young men to war. Paul Lantz's illustrations are very striking.
