Johnny Tremain
Houghton Mifflin 1943 - First Edition with the published year posted on the title page, as well as the copyright page. Very Good in Good unclipped ($2.50) dust jacket with closed tears, edge wear, chipping, and a small missing piece along the upper spine. I'm not usually a fan of medals on the dust jackets, but this one has two medals, both sides of the NEWBERY MEDAL, which this book won, and they appear quite different from the modern variation. These are mostly a teal with gold embossing - quite striking. (See photo.) The jacket and book is illustrated by Lynd Ward, who would go on to win the CALDECOTT AWARD. As for the author, Esther Forbes managed to win the NEWBERY MEDAL and the PULITZER PRIZE, no small feat for any writer! This extremely collectible book is protected in a mylar cover [Attributes: First Edition; Hard Cover]
