Babar and Father Christmas First U.S Edition by J. De Brunhoff:

Babar and Father Christmas is based on the original black and white productions written by Jean de Brunhoff for a newspaper, The Daily Sketch. Jean de Brunhoff died before they were produced in colour and it was his brother, Michael, who ensured that the wonderful stories of the adventurous elephant were published.

Blue boards are illustrated with snowflakes and an elephant. Yellow cloth spine is in clean condition with no tears or marks. Corners are bumped with a minor loss of colour in places on the edges. Internally the copy has intact bindings with clean pages. Colour illustrations throughout the text have no markings, foxing or scribbles. The book is covered by a clear film protector. Large folio size 12″ to 15″. 40 unnumbered printed pages of the story.
