Description: (CHILDREN''S LITERATURE.) BURTON, VIRGINIA LEE. The Little House. Illustrated by the author. Square 4to, original pictorial teal cloth stamped in cream; pictorial dust jacket, price-clipped, one small cellotape repair to verso of spine panel head, 5mm chip to spine panel foot not affecting lettering, few inconspicuous smudges; illustrations bright and unmarked. Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1942

Notes: first edition, first printing in the very scarce dust jacket, with the 1942 date printed on the title page. One of the rarest and most sought after children''s classics. "Burton knew exactly what she wanted in a picture book ... information and significant detail as well as the accustomed clarity, humor and imagination. The wonder is that she achieved what she wanted without losing the spontaneity..." (Bader, pp.199-201). Caldecott Medal winner.
