    Captain and the Kids - Famous Comics Cartoon Book Series (Whitman, 1934). Although similar in format to a number of Cupples and Leon publications from the 1920s, this Captain and the Kids book, published by Whitman in 1934, (the first of their "Famous Comics Cartoon Books" series), is more difficult to locate in nice condition. Printed on an inexpensive stock with a "lightweight" binding, this particular copy is one of the best we've seen. Binding is tight, interior paper quality remains supple. The spine is completely intact (no rips, no tears, no separation). Sharp cover colors. Light wear, overall condition is Near Mint. A superior copy of this scarce book, reprinting some choice Captain and the Kids exploits. From the Larry Jacobs Collection.
