Blueberry Corners

First edition of Lois Lenski's charming classic of small town life. From Kirkus: "Once again, Lois Lenski has drawn on the background of the section of Connecticut she knows best (near Torrington) for a story of family life 100 years ago. A parson's family has outgrown the boundaries of their income, and one of the children is adopted by an eccentric old great aunt, and she sets about trying to secure for her sisters the things she is offered for herself. A good picture of the day, told in a friendly anecdotal story." Light blue cloth covers with gilt decoration on front cover and spine. Illustrated endpapers, illustrated throughout in black and white. Some spotting to covers and spine, foxing to outside edge. Some light spots of foxing here and there to text. Front endpapers appear to have been colored in by previous owner, although it was so neatly done (in colored pencils, erasable) I did not notice at first. Binding tight. 6 x 9 inches with 209 pages.
