THE STORY OF LITTLE RED RIDING HOOD. RETOLD FROM PERRAULT. ILLUSTRATIONS BY PRIMROSE. Chicago: Willcox & Follett Co., 1946. Square 8vo. Pictorial boards in original pictorial dust jacket. Illustrated with fine LITHOGRAPHED color illustrations by Primrose McPherson Paschal. Please see enlargements for details. According to an account of this book in "The Art & Life of Primrose Mcpherson Paschal", page 19, it is stated that Primrose chose her friends as models - "Little Red Riding Hood and her Grandmother were Mrs. John O'Donnell, Sr & her little blonde granddaughter. The Mother was Mrs. Eleanor Rhodes, and the woodcutter was Stewart Robertson". Primrose's illustrations for this title were later issued by Samuel Lowe as a "TV Bonnie Book". A SCARCE title. Some wear to cover otherwise a very good copy.
