New York. Harper & Brothers. Ca. 1946.
Full page and in-text color illustrations, unpaginated, 8 3/4 x 6 1/4 inches, cloth-covered boards IN COLOR PICTORIAL DUSTJACKET. Book is fine condition; the price-clipped dustjacket has significant paper loss from insect damage. This is not the first edition (which was issued in a fur jacket!), but it is of late 1940s or early 1950s vintage. Back flap states "We are now printing the same, story, snug and cozy and full of love, without the fur jacket, in a larger size that will show to better advantage the jewel-like colors and wonderful details of Garth Williams' fourteen full color pictures."
