1 Dale, Frances THE GOOSEYPLUMS BY THE SEA, The Third Adventure of the Gooseyplums of Duckpond-in-the-Dip
London Hodder & Stoughton / H&S 1950 First Edition Hard Cover Good No Jacket Aileen Forbes-Boyd 
Gus Gooseyplum and his pals get into a little trouble when they impersonate a group of minstrels at a seaside resort. Racism was still alive and well in children's books of the 1950s, as evidenced by the opening paragraph of the third section of this little tome: "'Quite the best thing about this holiday,' said Mrs. Gooseyplum, roosting her tailfeathers into the soft sand, ' is the end of those nigger minstrels. I never liked them. Noise, twanging -- tiresome.'" Blue cloth w/gilt illustration to front cover, gilt lettering to spine, illustrated end papers, 79 pages. Moderate wear to corners/spine ends, fading to cloth around cover edges and spine, gift inscription to previous owner, a little internal smudging. 
Price: 10.00 USD
