Edition: First printing (with a "1" on the copyright page.)
New York: Harcourt Brace & Company, (1943.) dj. Hardcover first edition - James Thurber's first children's book - the story of a little princess who "fell ill of a surfeit of raspberry tarts" and who wanted her father, the King, to get her the moon so she will feel well again. Delightful illustrations. Winner of the 1944 Caldecott Medal. Large format unpaginated.
Condition: Very good (gift inscription opposite the title page dated 1944, some spotting to the red cloth covers and to the margins of some of the pages) in a very good, bright and attractive original dust jacket (the dj is price-clipped and apparently a second issue)
