Detailed Condition: Overall, EXCELLENT. Crease and smudge smear at top right corner of page. Medium stock paper. Age tanned page edges. Sewn binding edge of page is rough.

ABOUT Dorothy Pulis Lathrop. American. Illustrator [b. April 16, 1891 - d. 1980]
Lathrop was one of the most prolific, influential and important illustrators of children's books of the Golden Age (1930s - 1940s). The 27 year old school art teacher from Albany New York began her career at the age of 27 in 1918.

in her essay "Dorothy Lathrop's World," Anne Roberts discusses Lathrop's forty-five year career:
Her output was prodigious, even staggering. What makes this all the more impressive is the variety of media in which she worked: pen and ink, oil, watercolor, gouache, colored pencil, graphite, woodcut, wood engraving, lithographic pencil, and lithographic crayon. Each medium has its own exacting demand, and she mastered them all.
