Quarto. Original green cloth, spine lettered in gilt. With dust jacket.
Colour illustrations throughout by the author.
Spine rolled, rubbing to cloth at lower edges and corners, light occasional spotting. A very good copy in a slightly soiled jacket with light chipping to spine ends, light spotting to rear panel, and reinforcement paper to edges at verso.
