Harper & Row Trophy Book set of "The Little House on the Prairie" series by Laura Ingalls Wilder with drawings by Garth Williams.
8 books in amazing condition @ 45 years old - a bonus 9th book titled "The First Four Years" also by Wilder, comes with the set.

• Little House in the Big Woods
• Little House on the Prairie
• Farmer Boy
• On the Banks of Plum Creek
• By the Shores of Silver Lake
• The Long Winter
• Little Town on the Prairie
• These Happy Golden Years

• The First Four Years

This set of books is in truly brilliant condition - all with crisp corners and edges, and very tight binding - it is likely they have rarely been handled, let alone read. Most certainly they have been properly stored these past four-and-a-half decades as they are still neatly squared (no indications of humidity warping or swelling), and have no mildew scent or spotty discoloration. The pages show almost no age-tanning which is virtually unseen among books printed in the years before modern day acid-free papers. The artwork coloring on the covers remains bright and vibrant.

The original box is amazing, which is extremely rare - it could easily pass for brand new if the 45 year old graphics didn't date it! Please see pics for details.

Each of the original 8 books indicates they are 1st Edition Harper Trophy Book Printings 1971 - the 9th title "The First Four Years" indicates it is First Edition, 4th Printing 1971. They were printed in the USA.
