New York: Simona and Schuster, 1939. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good +. A very solid copy of the 1939 1st edition, 1st issue (with the 1939 date on the title page and the $2.00 price on the front jacket flap). Tight and VG in its wonderful pictorial boards (with light offsetting to the inner hinges, the endpapers and the pastedowns, and light wear at the foot of the spine) in a crisp, price-intact, VG+ dustjacket, with a 1/2" chip at the foot of the spine. Tall quarto, wonderfully illustrated thruout by the maestro Bemelmans. Also includes an original Simon and Schuster "Did You Like This Book" postcard asking readers to write their response on the card and mail it in. A well-preserved, impressive copy of a notoriously fragile title in its original edition. (Inventory #: 14799)
