This is a wonderful vintage 'paint book' better known as a coloring book. Margaret O'Brien - Paint Book Authorized Edition - A Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Star - Copyright 1947 by Whitman Publishing Company Racine, Wisconsin Printed in U.S.A. Drawings by Hedwig Jo Meixner. It measures 15' x 11' and it contains over 50 lovely pages. Some of the pages have been carefully colored on as you can see and some have not. The pictures are fabulous. This coloring book belonged to Barbara Jane Rhodes and her name is on the front cover in pencil. She also put her first name on many of the pages. She did a great job coloring the pictures. The softcover book is in pretty good shape considering its age. The pages have yellowed slightly over time but they do not smell musty at all. There are some creases on the front and back covers and the back cover has a few tears, the binding shows alot of wear, a few of the pages have a few small tears and 2 of the pages have pulled away from the binding. Both covers have faded over time as well - but still this book is beautiful. And the pictures depict the styles of the day and they are fantastic. This would make a great addition to any collection.
