First Edition Notes by JeNeal (THANK YOU)

Bad Little Duckhunter -- mine is an emerald green plain cloth cover, 9.5" x 7.5". The spine has the title and author in gold and a JP near the bottom, which seems to make it a library printing. The title page gives the title and author and a sketch of a boy shooting a rifle at a flying duck that looks to be about six feet away (gruesome!). Below the sketch it says "With illustrations by Clement Hurd" and below that "William R. Scott, Inc., publisher".

On the page facing the title page, it says in small print across the bottom "copyright mcmxlvii by margaret wise brown . made in u. s. a." all in caps.

Dust Jacket on First edition

 

THE BIG FUR SECRET

Illustrated by Robert DeVeyrac 

Published: New York, Harper & Brothers [1944]

I haven't seen any evidence that this title came with a dust jacket- Because I have never seen one listed with one. My friend JeNeal, who is a Librarian and collector - says that it didn't come with one- so that is good enough for me. The reason may be that is was 1944 and during the war, colors were cut to a minimum and there were less books with DJs. Many just had kraft paper covers with just the title. This could be the case with The Big Fur Secret.

Description: [32] p. col. illus. 30 x 23 cm. LC Call No.: PZ10.3.B7656Bi 

Notes: "First edition." Other authors: De Veyrac, Robert, illus. Control No.: 7396050

First Edition POINT by JeNeal (THANK YOU)

My Big Fur Secret books don't have dust jackets. They're both red cloth with an imprint of a bear on the front and nothing on the spine.

Thanks for the Harper explanation of the letter code.
