First printing, date of 1948 appears on title page and copyright page, no indication of later printing. NOT ex-lib, book is in wonderful shape, black boards with white type, some fairly significant bumps to top and bottom of spine with color rubbing off, other corners lightly bumped. No writing or markings, color is vibrant, binding is tight, no dogears or folds. Jacket is in rough shape but is intact. NOT price-clipped, shows price of $3.00. Significant closed tear along edge of front flap, chips to top and bottom edges of front cover, significant (3/4") chip missing from bottom of spine and another closed tear to spine right at the title. Minor chipping and significant edgewear to back cover, which features ads for Paddle-To-the-Sea and Tree in the Trail. Jacket will be presentable in Brodart but is rough, could be repaired. Overall a very nice copy of the 1949 Newbery Honor Book, in collectible, if not perfect, condition. Houghton Mifflin, 1948. 002401
