Based on their enormous success in the United State, Little Golden Books began to appear in many other countries. Some titles were simply translations of those already published in the US, though many were original to the home country. Madeleine, a Petit Livre D'Or (Little Golden Book) published in France in 1954 is a straightforward translation of the US LGB (though the title is spelled in the French-preferred Madeleine, rather than Madeline). Written and illustrated by Ludwig Bemelmans, it is a first edition French publication in VG+ condition (with a bump to the lower corner).
