MY BUSY DAYS

PICTURE BOOK. MY BUSY DAYS by Edith Sturgis. NY: D Appleton 1908 (Oct. 1908). Folio (10 1/2 x 14"), cloth backed pictorial boards, some edge wear and cover rubbing else VG+. First edition. This is a stunning book of poems for children, illustrated by Brandywine artist MARGARETTA HINCHMAN with 8 particularly lovely color plates (very similar to Green and Betts) plus pictorial endpapers and pictorial borders on text pages. Hinchman studied with Howard Pyle 1895-99 and was the "fourth musketeer" of the Green, Oakley and Smith Brandywine group. She went on to become a landscape painter and muralist as well as being a founding member of the Philadelphia Art Alliance. This is incredibly difficult to find this book in collectible condition.
