Illustrated by Charlotte Jeter in full color and duotones. Large format, unpaginated.
Condition: Very good in glossy red illustrated boards - some delamination near the spine, and a flaw in the lamination process has caused some 'alligatoring' to the boards (apparently common to just about all copies) - contents are just about fine.
