New York, NY: Random House, 1959. Coggins, Jack. Hard Cover. Good / Good. Item #050771
Signed letter by the author laid in (the letter is addressed merely to Young Reader, not to a particular individual); the letter bears some creasing and mild age-toning along the edges but is otherwise sound. Pages are clean and bright, with no owners' marks; square, slightly relaxed binding; the corners and spine ends of the hard cover are a little softened and rubbed, otherwise excellent. The dust jacket has several short edge tears at the lower edges and at the spine head, small chips at the free corners and small open chips at the spine ends, and a little fingerprint smudging on the back, otherwise bright and attractive, now protected in a clear sleeve.
