Year: 1964 (First Edition)
Publisher: Frederick Warne & Co. Ltd.

Description: The incredibly rare sixteenth instalment of the Sunbeam Stories series. Like #13, this famous tale has been retold using simple language and printed in large text for easier reading.
Features four beautiful colour plates (including a frontispiece) plus a further five full-page b&w illustrations.
Pictorial card boards. Apart from a negligible stain on the front (refer to image) and some minor rubbing near the tail of the spine, the book is effectively in the same condition it left the publishing house 46 years ago: the pages are crisp, umarked, and the binding is extremely tight – indicating the book was probably unread.
Unlikely that a finer example exists.
Measures 14 cm × 10 cm (5.6″ × 4″). Large 24mo. 48 pp.
