Hi everyone!

I have a rare find for someone looking for a special gift for a child.  The first ISBN won't list here but it's called " A Fairy Tale" based on a lovely doll (yes an actually doll) with her wings spanning to a  VERY Highly illustrated Hardcover/Board book.  It's about a 12 inch adorable fairy doll with wand, little lace sandals, high detail. I hardly ever say highly illustrated but this one is beautifully done. Includes a fairy princess story that would make anyone smile. Condition is perfect.

The second is a Child's Garden of Verses by Robert Louis Stephenson and is absolutely illustrated to the hilt. It could be posted easily but is also apt to be taken quickly. It's hardcover, about twelve inches in length and a heavier volume than I have seen. Cover is perfect, as well as inside.

I wanted to offer this to you all first before proceeding to list it as it's highly attractive and giftable. I will also send immediately to get it to you prior to the holidays.

I'd like 1 points for the fairy as she can't be sent media mail.  She's too much a real doll holding the book in wings I won't chance it.  I'd send it first class to anyone interested.

I will also take one point for the Child's Garden of verses. It really is lovely.

Anyway, hope someone can enjoy these. Please PM me with any interest.

Happy Holidays to all and thanks for reading!

Taken!!!!! 12-14

just to let you now you are not allowed to ask for additional credits for a book.  each book is allowed only one credit except for audio books which are two credits.  here is the link  


  • Can I offer/ask more than 1 credit for a book?
