Unbeknownst to many book collectors but a point of real interest to all those interested in Little Golden Books is the fact that the first thirty-five titles in the series were published with dust jackets. The jackets featured the familiar Golden leaf and vine design on the spine, but the book spines were blue cloth. The Golden Book of Flowers (#16), was written by Mabel Witman and illustrated by MH. Full color and black and white pictures of popular flora enliven a text featuring talking flowers. A first printing in Fine condition in a Fine dust jacket (with an advert for War Stamps on the back flap).
