First Edition

SIGNED BY ESTHER BURNS on front free endpaper, and inscribed "for Nancy" (this book is from the estate of Nancy Carroll Draper, a well-known philanthropist).

Unpaginated. Color and b/w illustrations. Black and red text. Pictorial endpapers with a poem by Hillaire Belloc on front and rear free endpapers.

Seven pages have some small tan spots in bottom margins (not foxing). Endpapers have some browning from publisher's glue seepage (appears similar to age toning). Binding is tight. Pictorial covers with blue cloth spine. Cover edges are age-toned and lightly rubbed. Cover corners are rubbed to boards. Top front cover edge has a small bumped spot, and two tiny chafe marks near spine. Top spine edge has tiny chips; bottom spine edge is missing a small diagonal piece. Cloth is torn along rear spine edge, but spine is still intact, and is age-toned. Spine also has a small tear about 1-1/4 inches from bottom.
