ABC books are a collecting category all by themselves and Maud and Miska Petersham's An American ABC ranks right up there with the very best of the mid-20th century. A, of course is for America, and B is for the Liberty Bell, C is for Columbus, and D is for Daniel Boone...you get the idea. A 1942 Caldecott Honor Book with beautifully rendered full color and three-color full page illustrations throughout. In Very Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket (with a bit of darkening along the front edge...not quite as pronounced as in the scan above).
