Older readers may remember that I used to share scans from my vintage magazine collection. Yes? No? If you don't remember you can view some of those posts here: Move Life [April, 1940], Marie Claire [March 24th, 1939], and Fall/Winter Sears & Roebuck Catalog [1939/1940] to name a few. Anyhow I'm going to be bring this back, but with a twist. You see, I have a good number of vintage items in my collection: clothing, books, records, bags, shoes, hats, magazines, etc... that I thought it was high time that I start a series called, Into the Archives to share these treasures with y'all. Sound like fun? Good. Onto the first item featured in this series.Item: By The Shores of Silver Lake by: Laura Ingalls Wilder
Illustrated by: Helen Sewell and Mildred Boyle
Year & Edition: 1939 | First Edition [It also looks like it is a First Printing too with the code: I-O which means: September, 1939.]
Historical Tidbits: Helen Sewell illustrated the "Little House" books until 1953, when she was replaced with the drawings by Garth Williams. Yep, Garth Williams was NOT the original illustrator for the "Little House" books.
What I Paid: $1 at local library book sale
