This book is in good plus condition with slight shelf and edge wear, light soiling and an inked gift inscription on the blank page opposite the title page. The DJ, now protected in a poly cover, is in good shape with edge wear, tears, and chipping, and minor soiling and wrinkles. ; This is a first edition of a scarce title. The title page states that the publisher are "Fine Art Publishers to Their Majesties the King and Queen and to Her Majesty Queen Mary." How cool is that? While the book is undated, the gift inscription is dated 1949. Tuck Books are considered first editions, according to my first edition guide, if no additional printings are noted on the copyright page. That page lists no additional printings. As is often the case with juvenile picture books, this book alternates between b & w and color illustrations. This is a very nice first edition with jacket of a hard to find book! ; Color Illustrations; 8vo 8" - 9" tall
