by Brunhoff, Jean de
1934. BRUNHOFF, Jean de. A.B.C. de Babar.  pp. Illustrated throughout in colour. 8vo., 210 x 162 mm, bound in original publisher's decorated boards, decorated endpapers, in a new yellow cloth folding box. Paris: Editions du Jardin des Modes, 1934. First Edition. A number of Babar's friends may be seen herein among the A.B.C.'s, including Céleste, Coco, and Cornélius. Below the "Liste des mots à trouver" Babar says: "Félicitations de Babar à tous les lecteurs qui trouveront d'autres mots." Very minor signs of use, but overall a fine copy of a delightful children's A.B.C., and one of the scarcest Babar books. This work remained unknown to Hürlimann, and only seven copies of it are recorded in American libraries on OCLC.Slight wear, but in general a fine copy of a scarce book.
