86pp. Quarto [28.5 cm] Light green cloth covered boards with yellow ink stamped titles, and a yellow ink stamped design of Pagoo on the front cover. Green and white illustrated endsheets. Very good. The cloth at the spine ends is frayed, and the underlying boards are just starting to peek through at the bottom fore edge corner of the front cover. The dust jacket is in good condition only with a number of closed and open tears along the edges and near the folds. The longest closed tear is 4" long, and has been backed with tape. The largest open tear is at the head of the jacket's spine. The tear measures 2" wide by 1" deep.
