1 Ets, Marie Hall
Mister Penny
New York: Viking Press / Junior Literary Guild (1935) First Edition 
11"x8.5" Orange cloth. 47pp. Caldecott Award-winning Marie Hall Ets' first book has a humorous, engaging story and wonderful art. Her pictures were created with an interesting batik process, wherein Ets painted out white areas of her drawing with gum arabic and brushed the rest with ink. Bader (pp 167-168) remarks that the results have a "happy spontaneity". Very Good+ in tattered dustjacket (spine panel split and mostly missing; pieces missing from lower panel).
