Perry Werner Posted May 2, 2004 Share Posted May 2, 2004 Hi folks: In my new, what seems like never ending, desire to acquire, accumulate and no doubt appreciate, concertina related artifacts, I last week tripped over this wonderful children's book at a book show in New York City with the following description (which was actually written by a friend of mine who, like myself is also a rare book dealer). "Captain Jeff and the Squeeze Box" by Ruth K. Todt Book Description: Chicago: Whitman. photos by R. D. Richardson. , 1940, unpaged. Binding is tan cloth with photo-decorated cover, no dj. photo endpapers. Photo picture book involving a concertina and a peg-legged salt named Captain Jeff and other funky marionettes. VG+ with slight edge wear and soiling to covers, contents great. If anyone in interested in acquiring a copy of this book as there are several available, very reasonably priced, though the condition of the copies may vary and none of the copies I've seen listed have the dustjacket which my copy has (and for which I now realize I paid a premium, happily) though the front cover has a picture which mimcs the image on the dustjacket, please let me know and I will be happy to reveal the source. Hopefully the image I've attached will appear. This image is of two facing pages inside the book. Have fun, Perry Werner Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
