Big Golden Book - Netherlands

Continuing with our foreign Big Golden Book editions, we come to one of the most interesting of them all, the Dutch version.

This version is from 1955, and at first glance looks to be an early US edition since the title in Dutch is the same as in English and the cover has the same gold highlights. But, the Dutch apparently really liked the whole 'gold highlighting' motif, because they continued it on every interior page.

It was quite surprising when I first saw this, seeming a bit much, but has acquired a certain charm for me in years since.
