The well-known tale woe and triumph told by Black Beauty himself, this lovely edition is part of the Illustrated Junior Library collection and contains the colorful illustrations by Fritz Eichenberg. First published in 1877, Black Beauty is one of the most –if not the most- recognized pieces of literature in history. This hardcover book is in excellent condition and must have been lovingly stored as it shows little signs of wear, no dust cover. Binding is perfect, outside shows some marks but no damage, inside pages and illustrations are pristine. Published by Grosset & Dunlap, New York, 301 pages, 1945.
