Book and dust look new. Dust in mylar. Signed by Ms. Tudor on Title page. Tasha Tudor (August 28, 1915 June 18, 2008) was an American illustrator and author of children's books.Tasha Tudor was born in Boston, Massachusetts as Starling Burgess. She was originally named after her father, the naval architect W. Starling Burgess, known as "the Skipper". As he was an admirer of the War and Peace character Natasha, his daughter was soon re-christened, and the name was eventually shortened to Tasha.When socializing with her mother's friends, Tudor was usually introduced as "Rosamund Tudor's daughter, Tasha", leading others to believe that her last name was Tudor. Liking the sound of it, she adopted the name and eventually changed her surname legally following her first divorce.[2] She married Thomas McCready in 1938 in Redding, Connecticut. Tasha and Thomas McCready purchased a large old farm in Webster, New Hampshire, where four children, Bethany, Seth, Thomas, and Efner, were raised. Her first story, Pumpkin Moonshine, was published in 1938, as a gift for a young niece of her husband. They were divorced in 1961, and her children legally changed their names from McCready to Tudor. A later marriage, to Allan John Woods, lasted only a brief time.[3]Tasha Tudor illustrated nearly one hundred books, the last being Corgiville Christmas, released in 2003. Several were collaborative works with a New Hampshire friend Mary Mason Campbell. Tudor lived in Marlboro, Vermont in a house copied from that of other New Hampshire friends Donn & Doris Purvis. Her son Seth built the replication and lives next door with his family. It is documented in Drawn from New England, and in The Private World of Tasha Tudor. Mother and son worked closely on family endeavors. Rare. ; Color Illustrations; 0.38 x 7.06 x 7.04 Inches; 32 pages; Signed by Author
