The Kewpie Primer, Illustrated by Rose O'Neill, 1916, First Edition, Frederick A Stokes


The Kewpie Primer, wonderfully illustrated by American cartoonist, Rose O'Neill. Rose O'Neill was the first female cartoonist to have her work published in the US.

O'Neill described a Kewpie as "a sort of little round fairy whose one idea is to teach people to be merry and kind at the same time."

Clean, unmarked pages. Light wear to cover edges. Light fading to spine.

Covers are fraying a bit at edges and worn at spine ends. Cover ink faded and cloth unevenly toned. Pages have occasional light crease or smudge but overall clean and unmarked.
