WHEN JENNY LOST HER SCARF - MOCK-UP PLUS 2 INSCRIBED BOOKS

AVERILL,ESTHER. WHEN JENNY LOST HER SCARF - INSCRIBED MOCK-UP PLUS 2 INSCRIBED BOOKS. Offered here is Averill's dummy for "When Jenny Lost Her Scarf", Jenny's First Party and The Adventures of Jack Ninepins all INSCRIBED BY AVERILL to the same person. A. The mock-up of When Jenny Lost Her Scarf, published by Harper & Brothers in 1951. It measures 5 x 7 1/2", crudely bound in paper over boards. There is soil and offsetting from glue, part of title missing on cover, complete but for one illustration overall VG for this type of pre-published item. The text and pictures are printed but cut out and glued into place. There are many notes and changes in Averill's hand and she has hand-colored the sections of the pictures that she wanted colored. The lettering and illustration on the cover are hand done. It is inscribed "For Pat and Charles from Esther." B. Jenny's First Party - First edition (correct price, no ads for later titles) published by Harper & Brothers in 1948. Slim 8vo (5 x 7 1/2"), cloth, VG in soiled dust wrapper repaired on the verso. This is the third book about Jenny. Inscribed "For Pat, Charles and Tobey's friends with greetings from Edther and Jenny. C. The Adventures of Jack Ninepins published by Harper & Brothers in 1944. 8vo ( 6 1/4 x 8 1/2"), cloth, VG in soiled dust wrapper with mends on verso. Stated first edition. This is the story of a humanized bowling pin that travels to Paris. Inscribed "For Peggy and Pat from Brother Rat. New York 1945." This is a wonderful representation of Averill's work. Inscribed material by her is rare and this mock-up even rarer still.
