New York: Macmillan, 1955. First American Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. Duodecimo. 5.25 x 7.5 in. 216 pp. Very good in the original navy cloth boards with a firm binding and bright titling, and a fair illustrated dust jacket that has the price listed, but has significant tears and chips throughout. A prior owner's book plate appears on the front free endpaper. The interior covers and endpapers have toning from the jacket flaps while the pages remain clean and free of foxing. Very Good. Item #4872
