Description:
New York: Random House, 1957. First Edition, First Printing. First Printing of both the book and dust jacket. First Printing of the book: copyrighted 1957, matte finish (not laminated), single signature (page gathering). In the rare first printing dust jacket: with the price "200/200" on the front flap, and with no mention of the "Beginner Books" series on the rear panel. Albeit being the rare First Printing, this copy is only in fair to good condition, and is consistent with that book grade. There is substantial generalized usage wear. Book is complete, just suffering from generalized wear. No previous signs of ownership, aside from the small bookseller bookplate of The Little Acorn Books and Gifts. Hinges are attached, rear hinge starting, internal paper with some separation, hinges very shaken. External rubs and abrasion. The dust jacket is severely creased and abraded, with a 5 inch closed tear. The dust jacket is laminated (unlike the book) so is fairly durable despite… Read more
