First Printing, a paperback original. Small octavo; glossy, illustrated wrappers, with terrific cover art by Mitchell Hooks; yellow edgestaining; 157pp, . A stress crease to rear cover, with a few pinpoint rubs and light tanning to lower text edges; very Near Fine, and the best we've seen after many years of looking.

A truly superb copy.
