Meoraot Dubon HaKatan written and drawn by Mary Tourtel, Hebrew edition translated by Avraham Even Shoshan, published by Itoneinu, Jerusalem 1934. Rare.

The book was originally part of the Rupert Bear series written by English author Mary Tourtel, which was published as comics in the Daily Express. The style of the illustrations in the book are somewhat reminiscent of the Doctor Dolittle illustrations. The book was written entirely in rhyme, and the translator succeeded in the difficult task of translating the book in such a way that it is also written in rhyme in Hebrew, without changing the story line. One of the interesting things in the book (which was not sufficiently researched) is the fact that the commas and periods appear at the height of the middle of the letters, and not at the bottom as is currently accepted. There are those who claim that there was an unsuccessful attempt with this book to set up punctuation in a way that was different from the norm.

44 leaves. Stains. Fine condition.
