I would like to find out if this book has any value-
Little Golden Book
Mother Goose
Picture of Bo Peep and Little Boy Blue on cover with 2 sheep and a goose.
Number 4 on the cover near the spine
No writing in the book, except on title page pencil writing #123- 5.00
no tears or creases
Title page says
Selected by Phyllis Fraser
Illustrated by Miss Elliott
Copyright 1942

As far as I can tell it is an original first edition.
Any value to the book?
Any and all help is appreciated.
Thanks
Vicki

You would think that anything from that era would be worth quite a bit but I know from experience. I've seen this
book as you described, once at a flea market for three dollars and once at an antique mall for thirty. Well that does't help much does it? But if this copy was indeed mint condition (and I mean mint) figure about $45. Hope this helps. S.B.

The first edition would have a blue spine and 42 pages. It would also be noted inside the cover on the title page what printing it is. If it has a foil gold spine and 28 pages it would show the edition inside the back cover near the spine with a letter. A first edition would definetly be noted in this book. The value isprobably closer to 10.00. Look at the FAQ to help identify the edition.

Is there some way I can post a photo?
Or send pictures to someone here who can give me an opinion?
Thanks Vicki
