Justin Morgan Set - Book, Print, and Model
This incredible set includes a Marguerite Henry 1st Edition, 1st Printing hardcover book, rare Wesley Dennis print, and Breyer model w/original cardboard box.
Print is of Ebenezer and Little Bub as colts, and was used at the beginning of chapter 1. Framed with silver-blue-grey marbled matting in a solid wood frame painted black. Needs a few pinpoint and tiny touchups. Own a print of the etching that can be seen in the book at the beginning of Chapter 1!
Book is a 1st edition, printing A, c. 1954. It is a linen-covered hard-cover with printed paper jacket. Shows considerable wear along the paper cover's edges and pine, but no significant damage to faces.
Breyer Justin Morgan model is in Excellent condition with two tiny, light rubs - right barrel and hip - that don't go all the way through the paint. They are most likely box rubs, which were common in the era of cardboard packaging. He also has tiny tail tip and ear tip rubs. All of these could be easily touched up. He wears a rich, warm body color with subtle highlights, a satin finish, and a USA mold mark. He comes with his original cardboard box, which shows minor wear.
