Book Description Pantheon Books, New York, 1952. Hardcover. Book Condition: Near Fine. Dust Jacket Condition: Good Plus. Rafaello Busoni (illustrator). 1st Edition. This is the First Edition (Pantheon NAP) of the titled Big Tiger and Christian (It was first published in England in 1954). There are only a few of the 1952 Firsts for sale on the Internet. They range in price from $150-250. None of them appear to have their dust jackets. So I think it's accurate to assert that this offering is priced much less expensively than its comparables. You can see the yellow covers in the photographs provided. They are very clean. There is a thin bluish line off the bottom edge of the rear cover. Not quite sure what that is or what caused that. Still it is a rather minor imperfection. This book has been taken very good care of. There isn't any wear at the edges or corners. There's just a little creasing at the spine ends. The design on the front cover (and the lettering on the spine) is quite bright and unworn. The interior of the book is in just as excellent condition. There is a beautiful color illustration on both the front and rear inside covers and end papers. The inside covers and end papers are perfectly clean and free of any wear. Furthermore, this 592 page book is tight and very solidly bound, without any issues in that regard. And the pages throughout are exceptionally clean. They are not toned. They are in excellent condition. Scrolling through, I didn't see any creases or dogeared corners. Nor any markings or attachments. And no one has written their name or anything else anywhere in the book. The dust jacket might have achieved the same Near Fine rating as the book were it not for the chip off the top edge of the spine removing some of the lettering and the smaller chip off the top edge of the rear cover. In the first photo you can see how terrific the front cover looks. With the exception of the small loss at the middle edge the front cover is in perfect condition. The spine and rear cover's issues are limited to the aforementioned chips. The jacket's flaps are in very good condition. All four corners have neatening clips but the price ($4.95) at the top front flap is unaffected. I've had the jacket in a fitted protective cover as long as I've owned it. 'An epic tale thats hard to put down' Big Tiger and Christian is a tale about a 'Chinese boy and his white friend traveling through the Gobi Dessert to Urumchi under the protection of a soldier when their caravan is joined by a man who has plans that may cost them their lives'.
