Hardcover. First edition, first issue. Illustrated by Chris Van Allsburg. Fine in blue cloth with applied color illustration, with the original publisher's printed label from the shrinkwrap, without dustwrapper as issued (although the publisher supplied jackets to some bookstores after publication, creating a variant state, and issued other first edition copies with a supplied jacket, creating a later issue). A young prince and his beloved Odette struggle against the evil Von Rothbart to protect themselves and their infant daughter in this adaptation of the classic ballet. Scarce with the original printed label.
