New York: The Macmillan Company, 1940. Illustrated by the Author. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good / Very Good. Item #061971
Pages crisp and clean except for a prior seller's sticker on the final endpaper and a hint of toning around the outside edges; no owners' marks; binding square and tight, full orange cloth hard cover only gently rubbed at the spine heel and bottom corners, pastedown illustration panel on the front immaculate. Jacket is unclipped, somewhat faded at the spine and showing bands of darkening around the edges, one small smudge at the lower front and a few faint fingerprints on the back, light surface wear along spine sides and foreedges, and a few occasional, tiny chips around the outside edges, but overall remarkably well-kept and attractive, now protected in a clear sleeve.
