New York: E.P. Dutton and Co., (1959).
Hardcover. First American edition. Slight sopiling on rear board, just about fine in modestly rubbed else near fine dustwrapper. A fable for children, basis for the film of the same name, which included one of the earliest performances by the author’s daughter, Hayley Mills. Also made into a musical by Andrew Lloyd Webber in 1992 with lyrics by Jim Steinman. The American edition, published a year after the English edition, is very uncommon in this condition.
