LITTLE TIM AND THE BRAVE SEA CAPTAIN
- ARDIZZONE,EDWARD. LITTLE TIM AND THE BRAVE SEA CAPTAIN. London, NY, & Toronto: Oxford Univ.Press, 1936. Folio, pictorial boards, slight edge rubbing else near FINE IN DUST WRAPPER (dw chipped, frayed). First edition of Ardizzone's first book for children. Written by Ardizzone with text in calligraphy and with color illustrations on every page. Although it was published in London and New York, the entire edition was printed in New York during a hot, humid summer. To protect the pictures it had to be printed on one side of paper only. This is a wonderful story that Eyre calls "one of the most convincing British picture story books yet produced" (p.43). Whalley (p.188-9) notes that this was one of the first books to be printed with photolithography. it proved to be a major landmark in the history of the English picture book.
