    THE BURGESS SEASHORE BOOK FOR CHILDREN. Hardcover 1929 1st Edition
    This ia a wonderful 1st book by Thornton W Burgess "The Burgess Seashore Book For Children"in great condition.
    Illustrated by W. H Southwick and George Sutton, published by Little, Brown Company 1929 Boston

    From the Internet:
    "An invaluable companion to any child spending a seashore holiday." — New York Herald Tribune
    Familiar Burgess characters Danny Meadow Mouse, Jimmy Skunk, and Reddy Fox explore every nook and cranny of the shoreline and learn first hand about the habits and habitats of spider crabs, sea cucumbers, sand eels, and that strangest of little fishes — the sea horse.
    Veteran storyteller and nature lover Thornton W. Burgess provides fascinating information to young readers as he describes coastal areas along the Atlantic Ocean. Along the way he weaves the area's many life forms into an entertaining tale that's also an illustrated guide to the seashore's natural history.

      Reminds me of home. Lived by a federal migratory bird sanctuary by the Atlantic ocean. Very good condition.

      Caperkid, Thank you! That would have been interesting living by the bird sanctuary.

      The condition is superb!! Gold lettering barley worn and the cover plate not chipped, scratched or corners lifting. The inside binding and pages very fine indeed.
