Jewish children's literature

Fairy Flowers by Isidora Newman, /Willy Pogany, ill., NY Oxford 1926, 1st Am

Fairy Flowers.

Really wonderful fairy stories and pictures, strange, too. They made a strong impression on me as a child. Newman was a Jewish storyteller and painter originally from New Orleans interested in children's welfare. Pogany encouraged her natural talent.

A book I am discarding as I upgrade my own collection. Please note that the main jpg here is of an interior plate, not the binding. Note also that while people frequently refer to these plates as being "tipped in" (glued at the top), all the ones I have seen have been mounted, or pasted - on Please note: THIS BOOK HAS BEEN SOLD
