Rare signed copy by both authors. The Definitive Bibliography and Collectors Guide. Looks New. Dust is in archival cover. First comprehensive bio-bibliography of one of the most loved children's book authors and illustrators in America and around the world. Not only does this book describe Tudor's sixty-year career, but also readers will enjoy the poignant stories about Tudor written by her two daughters, Bethany and Efner, and her editors, Patricia Gauch and Dorothy Haas. The daughter of naval architect, W. Starling Burgess, and portrait painter, Rosamond Tudor, Tasha Tudor, as a child, was greatly influenced by her father's engineering background and her mother's artistic life. She became particularly fascinated by life in the 1830's, which inspires her art, writing, and her own life. From 1938 onward, Tudor's children's books captivated a wide audience. Her fans are still intrigued by her magical stories and her romantic illustration of New England's countryside, drawn from her own experiences of family life. Her work is published in more than 90 books, which have been reprinted and republished many times. ; Illustrations, Photos; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 557 pages; Signed by All Authors

Tin Type of Young Girl, No Author
29 No Author Tin Type of Young Girl
New York Unknown c1896 First Edition; First Impression Ephemera Very Good with No dust jacket as issued 
Tin type of young girl in period clothing ( late 1800's) She has hand resting on wooden plant stand. A great representation of period dress, hair style, and stoic pose. The tintype was developed in 1853 using a similar technique to the ambrotype. Called a collodion process, this technique requires the photographic material to be coated, exposed, and developed on site. This is not a book. The tintype image, however, was mounted against a thin sheet of black-enameled (or japanned) iron instead of glass. Unlike earlier photographs, a tintype is unbreakable.Interestingly, the term tintype is a misnomer. Because the iron they were mounted on was so thin, many assumed it must be tin, and the name stuck.The entire tintype process was quick and cheap. Within a few minutes, the customer could take an image home with him at the cost of a penny or less at first ; Photograph; ; 64mo 3" - 4" tall; 17 pages
