Paris: Domino Press, 1931. Large 4to, [14] pp. Full-color lithographs throughout. Quarter-cloth, illustrated boards. A few marks on lower board, pages bright and clean, very good. First edition of the first Domino Press book, first children’s book by the Russian émigré artist Feodor Rojankovsky (1891–1970) and a landmark in children’s book illustration. Though no American firm would back the projected book, Daniel Boone was eventually “distributed in the United States by the Bookshop for Boys and Girls, featured in the Horn Book, and touted by Anne Carroll as ‘a unique first book in American history’” (Bader, 119). Rojankovsky eventually illustrated more than 100 children's books during his career. He received the Caldecott Medal from the American Library Association in 1956. Not in Cotsen. (Item Id: 11103)
