This is the scarce and desirable edition that contains 32 full color illustrations by Warwick Goble. This book is a former library copy, and does not have the original binding. It has a library binding in red with black designs. Simple black text on spine. Original book has no library markings, new rear endpaper attached to library binding show some remnants of card slot removal. No other markings that I can find. 32 color illustrations by Warwick Goble with captioned tissue-guards (all present).

Pages show some soil and foxing, wear at edges, a few pages have small closed tears. All illustrations were printed on glossy stock paper and show much less soil. 7 inches by 9 inches with 379 pages.
