Description

Here's a great old collection of FIFTEEN Marguerite Henry books -- 10 hardback (including some very old editions!) and 5 softbound paperbacks.

All are USED and do show their age, most in fair condition. I will include detailed descriptions of each below.

In this group you'll receive:

~~~HARDBACKS~~~

1. WHITE STALLION OF LIPIZZA, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Second Printing, November, 1964]. This does have the dustjacket, but as you can see, the dustjacket is EXTREMELY WORN. This is also a former library book, with the remains of a library card pocket on the inner front cover and the dustjacket partially affixed to the book (obscuring some of the color image inside the front and back covers, unfortunately). The book itself shows average wear (and a little more around the upper and lower spine and cover corners), a bit of age-spotting, and is overall in fair condition.

2. ALBUM OF HORSES, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Edition of 1961]. This does have the dustjacket, but as you can see, the dustjacket is EXTREMELY WORN. The book itself shows average wear & a bit of age-spotting, but is overall in good condition.

3. JUSTIN MORGAN HAD A HORSE, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Third Printing 1947]. NO DUSTJACKET. This oldie shows A LOT of wear -- most notable, the first few pages are coming loose from the binding (see upper right of second listing photo), although no pages are missing. Also has some inked writing on the front cover, a pencil drawing on the back cover (though this is a fairly good drawing of a horse!) and shows a lot of wear to the cover, cover edges, etc. WORN condition.

4. KING OF THE WIND, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Edition of 1951]. NO DUSTJACKET. Has some penciled notations by the original child owner (including the fact that they read it in 1952), a bit of age-spotting (including a few dark spots on some interior pages), age-yellowing, and typical wear. Overall in fairly good condition.

5. CINNABAR, THE ONE O'CLOCK FOX, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Edition of 1956, which is also its original copyright date -- possible First Edition?!] - Has dustjacket, which does show considerable wear (most notable is a tear on the upper spine. Original owner's name stamped on a couple of places in the book's interior. Some age-yellowing, but overall in good condition.

6. BENJAMIN WEST AND HIS CAT GRIMALKIN, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Copyright 1974, no info on what edition it is -- does that mean it's a first? I don't know!] - NO DUSTJACKET. Shows average wear, bit of dark coloration on outer front cover, age-yellowing, but overall in good condition.

7. ALL ABOUT HORSES, illustrated by Wesley Dennis + black & white photographs. [Copyright 1962, no info on what edition it is]. NO DUSTJACKET. Shows average wear & a bit of age-yellowing, overall in good condition.

8. MISTY OF CHINCOTEAGUE, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Twentieth Printing, 1966]. NO DUSTJACKET. Has original owner's name written on an interior page and a library card pocket on the inside back cover. Shows some wear and a little bit of age-spotting, but in fairly good condition.

9. STORMY, MISTY'S FOAL, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Seventh Printing, July, 1974]. NO DUSTJACKET. Shows wear (particular around the cover edges) and a bit of age-spotting, but in fairly good condition.

10. SEA STAR, ORPHAN OF CHINCOTEAGUE, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Seventeenth Printing, July, 1971]. NO DUSTJACKET. Shows minor wear and some age-spotting, overall in good condition.

~~~SOFTBOUND/PAPERBACKS~~~
11.  PETER LUNDY AND THE MEDICINE HAT STALLION, illustrated by Robert Lougheed (this Movie Tie-In edition was originally published as 'San Domingo: The Medicine Hat Stallion') [THIRD paperback printing, 1978]. Shows a bit of age-spotting and average wear, overall in good condition.

12. BRIGHTY OF THE GRAND CANYON, illustrated by Wesley Dennis. This one is a former library book with an old library card pocket in the back. Shows age-yellowing and average wear, overall in fair condition.

13. BORN TO TROT, illustrated by Wesley Dennis [Ninth Paperback Edition, 1982]. Has original owner's name written on inside front cover, shows typical wear, overall in fair condition.

14. MUSTANG: WILD SPIRIT OF THE WEST, illustrated by Robert Lougheed. Worn condition with age-yellowing & signs of wear, but still an adequate reading copy.

15. BROWN SUNSHINE OF SAWDUST VALLEY, illustrated by Bonnie Shields. This one has a dark coffee stain on the first 20 pages or so, and otherwise shows the typical 'water-waving to those pages' as well as some age-yellowing to the rest....but is still an adequate reading copy.
