MacNeil, Marion Gill; pictures by Frank Dobias MONTY MARINE
London/New York/Toronto: Oxford University Press, (1943). First edition, first printing. Square octavo. Hardcover. Owner's name to front endsheet, else fine in yellow cloth; in an age-toned dust jacket with minor nicking at spine ends and corner tips, spine panel darkened, spine folds worn, creased edge-tear to front panel.
A bright, sharp example of this scarce little WWII-era illustrated "book for small boys who, like Monty, admire the Marines." MacNeil also wrote SOLDIER SAMMY and SAILOR JACK.
