Octavo. Original cream cloth, spine lettered in metallic green, Mr. Fox motif in gilt to front cover, green endpapers. With dust jacket.
Black and white illustrations by Donald Chaffin to the text.
Boards a little foxed, discreet dark mark to spine, the binding otherwise sound and firm, faint foxing to edges and last few leaves, small chip to lower rear free endpaper corner, else internally clean and fresh. A very good copy in the very good jacket, minimally toned, slight dust-soiling, not price-clipped, bright.
