Chicago: Follett Publishing Company, 1957. Mary Stevens. Ninth printing. Hardcover. 27pp. Thin square octavo [20.5 cm] Yellow paper covered boards with red ink stamped title information on the spine and front cover, and a red ink stamped vignette on the front cover. Very good. The edges of the spine and covers are subtly bumped and abraded. There are three tiny stains on the rear board. There is a thin crack in the inside margin of the front pastedown, measuring under 1/2 of an inch long. Faint previous owner's name in pencil on the title page. The pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket is in very good condition, with mild rubbing and very light soiling. Light 7 and 1/2 inch crease in the front panel. There are multiple small losses from the edges, particularly at the spine ends and folds of the flaps. There are a couple of closed tears in the edges. The longest closed tear measures 2 inches long. Despite these flaws, the jacket is quite attractive. Item #30672
