The Wonderful Red Shoes by Evelyn Shaw Manuscript Children's Book

  • $ 300.00


5.5x7". 24pp. Mild wear to the extremities. Some corrections made with liquid paper in a few places, presumably by illustrator. 

Manuscript of an apparently unpublished book probably by noted children's author Evelyn Shaw ("Alligator", "Elephant Seal Island"). I can find no record of this book in the trade or institutional collections. Illustrator is uncredited, assumed to be Shaw. 

A story of an old man who dons red shoes and dances in the rain until catching cold, then learning some lessons.
