This is the 1st impression of the 1st US Edition, published in 1963 by Houghton Mifflin.
A bookplate and gift inscription to the front free endpaper.
No foxing, pages clean and bright.
Pictorial Cover and matching dustjacket, as issued, are in Very Good Plus condition, with a minor chip from the bottom of the front.
No bumps and only a slight loss to the dustjackets spine tips, and a couple of corners showing some wrinkling to the dustjacket as well. Not faded or soiled, with nice clean bright colors to the Pauline Baynes illustrations.
No other names or writing to the book.
A beautiful copy for the collector, becoming difficult to find in this nice condition.
