About This Item

New York: Thomas Y. Crowell Company, 1977. First Edition. Near Fine/Near Fine. First edition, first printing of the 1978 Newbery Medal winning novel. Bound in publisher's black cloth boards with spine lettered in silver. Near Fine with faint lean to binding, light rubbing at tips, former owner name to front free endpaper and pages lightly toned. In a Near Fine unclipped dust jacket with light restoration at spine ends, points of flap folds and the mending of a short tear to the top edge of the rear panel, and a price sticker to the front flap. A surprisingly difficult title to find in the first printing.
