Carol's Side of the Street, Beim, Lorraine
41 Carol's Side of the Street
Beim, Lorraine
New York Harcourt Brace 1951 Stated First Edition Hardcover Near Fine Very Good+ Jacket Malman, Illustrator 
Stated First Edition in clean original unclipped dust jacket. Clean dark blue cloth boards with green cloth spine, dark blue lettering on spine. No fraying or fading. Binding is tight and square, no cracking. Pages and edges are clean, with clean blank endpapers - no names, writing or marks. Illustrated by Malman. 213 pages. Illustrated dust jacket is not price clipped (2.50 on front inside flap), very slight age-toning to spine, tiny shallow chipping at top spine edge. Enclosed in new archival quality removable mylar cover. Carol had lived all her life in an apartment, and now they were moving to a real house where she would have her own room. The house was an old one, with a lot of work to be done on it before it would be livable, and Carol followed its progress eagerly. Her friends were as excited as she was, and when they discovered an old playhouse hidden in a mass of overgrown bushes and vines, they decided at once to start a club. Prejudice springs to life as a neighbor girl (Pam) makes it clear that people who went to the synagogue instead of to church were not welcome in the neighborhood. Slowly, Carol begins to understand that prejudice often comes from not knowing enough about people, and in the end--through the club activities--she and Pam grow to respect and like each other. (By the author of "Maggie Now.") Scarce. 025146
