New York: Dial Books for Young Readers, 1989. First Edition, First Printing. Hardcover. 5 5/8 X 8 1/2 Inches. 155  PP. Near Fine / Good. Item #4999
Stated "First Edition" with proper number line to the "1" on the copyright page. Original price of $13.95 intact. Illustrated by Edward Gorey! Not ex-library as is typically encountered. Bottom corner of front DJ flap clipped for some reason (does not effect price, which is at top). Top corner of FFEP trimmed a bit (we assume a previous owner name was cut away). An attractive copy of increasingly difficult book with quite a cult following.
