    Big Little Book #513 Wee Little Books Red Box Edition Children's Classics Set (Whitman, 1934) Condition: Books: VF/NM; Box: FN. A branch of Whitman's Big Little Book line, this set of Wee Little Books was issued by the company in 1934. Featuring "Child's Garden of Verses," "The Happy Prince," "Joan of Arc," "Peter Pan," "Pied Piper of Hamlin," and "Robin Hood," the interior pages show surprisingly little aging and most appear to be unread. There is a small chip at top of spine on the "Joan of Arc" volume, else only very slight wear. Housed in the very scarce original Red box (again, light overall wear), this is an extremely tough one to find. Overstreet 2005 VF/NM value = $200. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
