Viking Press 1952, first in this edition. 8vo (oblong 7 x 9"). Very good. Cover is very good, library buckram binding, a little wear to corners, light soiling. A few ex-library markings, removed back pocket. Internal pages have a few earmarks and light soiling on several pages. Cute b/w illustrations.
