New York: Grosset & Dunlap, 1943. First Illustrated Edition. Signed by illustrator Elizabeth Orton Jones on the title-page. Originally published in 1936, this is the first edition to be illustrated by Jones (who won a Caldecott Medal in 1945). Small illustrated 4to boards, with cloth spine, ca. 8.125"x8.5". Very uncommon signed. Corner tips a bit worn, especially the two bottom ones, but the spine is excellent, and it is otherwise very good. In the uncommon dust-jacket, which has several small chips and tears, with a small piece missing from the faded spine, and a few small tape repairs, otherwise, it is mostly complete.
