New York: Knop, 1938. First edition. An early version of an advance reading copy, unusual as such. Signatures bound in dust jacket trimmed to fit. This copy with "7313" stamped on first blank page (covered by dust jacket). A seemingly charming tale of a young girl and her grandfather, if one leaves out what the dust jacket flap describes as her "ripening into womanhood" .... at 14 years of age. (Involuntary shudder followed by hope the tale is an innocent enough one.) Fragile production, good to very good in pictorial paperwraps.
