I haven't shown any vintage books in a while. This edition of Heidi is from 1945 and has a nice slipcover with it.

This is the inside cover:
Here are some illustrations from the book:

Not trying to make a joke, but doesn't this first drawing look an awful lot like Michael Jackson?

Have a happy Independence Day, America!

Thanks so much for visiting my place today. Our children are big so we don't read to them anymore. It hurt to give away their old books. Not vintage but well worn: "Through three cheese trees three free fleas flew..."

LOL...what a pose! Definitely M.J. just about to launch into "Billie Jean."

Hope you are getting ready for a lovely Fourth!

What a sweet book, with wonderful illustrations! I've just started collecting alot of the classics, and this sure would qualify. I've been really restraining myself from saying anything naughty about MJ, but...yes. Yes it does.

I truly enjoyed Heidi from your view point. I love books old or new. You did a super job on the pictures too.
