Very Good + Translated by Merle Haas. True first edition, later republished by Random House after merging with Smith and Haas. The Babar books were noted for being some of the first oversized children's books, with the text printed in cursive writing and the water color and line paintings in spacious double-page spreads.

Interior unmarked with only very very slight soiling, A few pages beginning to split, lacking the elusive rare envelope-style dustjacket.
