Kunhardt revisited

A few posts ago I mentioned our first edition of Pat the Bunny (1940) by Dorothy Kunhardt. I ran across a couple of miniature libraries by the same author, issued by Simon & Schuster, in their original cardboard pictorial cases–part of the Golden Books series (“designed and produced by the Sandpiper Press and the Artists and Writers Guild, Inc.”). I’ve scanned a few of the covers from the Tiny Animal Stories set (1948) here, including a dime to indicate the scale. We also have a set entitled Tiny Nonsense Stories (1949), both beautifully illustrated by Garth Williams.

  1. Do you happen to know what the first edition points of Pat the Bunny actually are? It is difficult bibliographically, and I’ve not been able to find anything definitive.
