Hardcover First Printing in dust jacket without the foil award sticker. The author's first picture book, a very good copy with a complete row of numbers to 1 on the copyright page, and original price of $8.95 on the front flap of the jacket. No marks or writing in book. The dust jacket has a little wear along edges, a little rubbing at stress points, but no tears or chips. NOT an ex-Library copy.
