2 Kay, Gertrude Alice Friends Of Jimmy
Joliet P. F. Volland Company 1926 Second Edition Pictorial Boards Fine Octavo Gertrude Alice Kay 
This delightful book has it all for children: a prince, cats, a gobolin, Santa Claus, a sewing monkey, a goose, a sea monster, a highwayman (but no pirates !?). Issued in the Nature Children series. The book, with its wraparound pictorial is as fresh as it came from the bindery. The publisher's pictorial box lacks a half inch of the edge of the bottom, and several splits to the edge of the top. 006036
