Burgandy cloth covered boards [first edition] with illustration to upper board. Professionally re-bound with original backstrip re-laid on to spine. New endpapers. Thirty colour plates each with a one page chapter of the story opposite. Some wear to board edges. One text page [26] is facsimile replacement. Grubbiness and chipping to some pages. One text page has archival tape repair, one text page is creased and one text page has corner missing. Henry Mayer's illustrations are charming and the story is very entertaining. Mayer did not publish many children's books. A German, working mostly in the US, he was better known as a political cartoonist.
