New York: Harper & Brothers, 1948. 

The first has $1.75 price on the dust jacket 

Baumgarten

Wait Till the Moon is Full -- the differences beneath the dust jackets are these: The one with the $2.92 price on the dust jacket has a cream colored "paper stamped to look like cloth--I think" with a black raccoon  and title on the front. It has a small 30-60- on the back flap of the jacket.  The one with the $8.95 price has the identical picture as on the dust jacket (the book is paper glued over black cloth) beneath it and the spine has no writing, just black cloth. The back cover is just white paper and the and the same numbers are on the jacket flap.

Willie's Walk to Grandmama 

Written with Rockbridge Campbell.


Illustrated by Lucienne Bloch. New York: W. R. Scott, 1944.

 

Willie’s walk to grandmama / by Margaret Wise Brown and Rockbridge Campbell; illustrated by Lucienne Bloch.
Published New York : W. R. Scott, c1944.
Description [26] p. : col. ill. ; 20 x 17 cm.
Series ( Young Scott books)


Willie's Walk to Grandmama -- 6 1/2" x 7 3/8" pictorial paper board. Spine has worn away and been taped. This would be a great piece for your rebinding skills. I called it a school book because it doesn't have the usual library marking etc, but the inside cover has stamps that say "The Property of the Board of Education of Cincinnatti, Ohio", and a stamp that says "Sep 8 1945" and has a written inscription that says "Kindergarten Room 1". Those are the only marks in the whole book.
