Descripción

Snow by Thelma Harrington Bell, with drawings by Corydon Bell, was published by The Viking Press, New York, in 1960. Not an ex-library copy, this 6 3/4" X 10", 56-page, TWICE-SIGNED, Fifth printing offering is in VG- condition. This book, aged 53, is still in clean, firm physical shape, overall, its only noticeable flaw being some light staining, primarily all along the left edge of the front cover board, and much less so, more spotty, at the top and bottom edges of back board. The book is SIGNED by AUTHOR and ILLUSTRATOR, after the briefest Inscription, on the middle-third portion of the page adjacent to the Main Title Page. Originally published in 1954, this slender volume offers up as its subject snow--pretty much everything a young reader(indeed, to competent readers of any age) might wish to learn regarding the white stuff. It is presented in some 11 unnumbered chapters/sections, having such titles as "The Snow Blanket", "Snow Can Be Helpful", Snow Can Be Dangerous", "What Happens in the Sky", "Types of Snowflakes"(Stellar, Graupel, Capped Hex Columns, Asymmetrical Crystals, Ice Needles, etc.), "Snowflake Cousins"(Frost, Rime, Sleet, Hail, etc.), "Laboratory Snowflakes", and, interestingly, "The Story of Stella", which takes one, single, tiny snowflake, assigns this unassuming flake the name "Stella", and traces/describes its life story, from its creation/formation to its eventual demise. NOTE: The REAL STARS of this offering are the frequent Drawings of Corydon Bell, beginning with the striking images spanning the front endpapers (and duplicated on the back papers), pictures which help to clarify/illuminate points made regarding snow throughout text. The art is executed in a lovely combination of navy/deep blue, off-white, and various turquoises. This is, quite simply, one of those books that is both delightful and informative. Thanks very much!!. N° de ref. de la librería 006231
