Chicago: Publishers, The Book House for Children, 1953. Hardcover. 224p., dark green oilcloth gilt-titled and -ruled, with onlay color cover illustration. Case-binding is very good, edges just slightly worn without any damage; the onlay is rubbed, mostly affecting a boy's face. Drawings in b&w and in colors throughout are in fine condition with the splendid double-fold endsheets immaculate, no ownership or other markings; the previous owner(s) must have been either fastidious or had library cards.
