Description:

Good+: Shows moderate use. Binding shows the slightest lean; fairly heavy wear to the extremities; moderate rubbing; faint soiling; former owner's gift inscription at the front paste-down endpaper. Binding remains secure; text clean. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. Folio. Hardback: Pictorial Paper on Boards. This book is one that will stand the test of time in our opinion. Edith and Little Bear want to stay in NYC, but Mr Bear thinks the city is no longer a healthy place to raise children. Good plot. The two little ones do their best to clean up the city. The photos and their logic is heart warming. It could be used to inspire youth today to take a part in cleaning up their neighborhood. In the end, Mr Bear is won over by their efforts and commitment to the city and their community. Historically there are great photos of old cars, central park, and the original twin towers (minus the huge build up high rises around them). Dare Wright (1914-2001) was a fashion model and photographer based in New York City. In 1957, she used her childhood doll Edith and two teddy bears as the subjects of her first book The Lonely Doll. The combination of mesmerizing black and white photographs and simple, eloquent text made the book an immediate success and earned it a place on The New York Times Best Seller list along with Dare Wright’s next Lonely Doll book, Holiday For Edith And The Bears. Edith And Little Bear Lend A Hand is the eighth book in the series featuring Edith, Little Bear and Mr. Bear. Originally published in 1972, it was photographed in Dare’s apartment, on the streets of New York City and on the Hudson River where she captured her bittersweet image of the World Trade Center towers before they’d been completed. All of the photographs in this book have been reproduced from Dare Wright’s original negatives that she developed in the tiny darkroom of her apartment. Bookseller Inventory #
