INTERIOR CONDITION For a book decades, this is in great great condition!
Story/picture pages still tightly bound, and are clean & still crisp, and easily turnable so you don’t have to worry about the paper pages crackling apart at each turn. No foxing, no oxidation, no rust spots do I see. No tears, no rips, no pen marks on paper pages seen
Book is old, but strong & sturdy -no major problems, and very enjoyable. Previously privately owned so no library marks. Previous owner penned her name on front blank endpaper.

EXTERIOR CONDITION: Hardcover, no dust jacket. Minor marks on cover as shown, spine a little soft, but still held together fine. Cloth cover, illustrated on front.
Although this is not a first edition of this book with these artworks, it’s an early edition, and it was later republished with the same illustrations in the mid-1980’s.
Art is wonderful, colors still vivid as originally printed. Great frameable art for each play listed above.

To people that want an item shipped somewhere other than their “paypal address” – this shop only mails to the address on paypal, electronic receipts So if you want this item to ship to a different name and address, other than the 1 registered with paypal, it must go on the paypal receipt under special shipping instructions. Please call paypal if you need help in doing this during purchase. Entering such information on etsy is not enough as paypal only goes by their own system.
