Quarto. 47, [1]pp. Original illustrated dust-jacket over blue cloth, with black lettering on spine. Front free endpaper inscribed and signed by the author. Illustrated title page. This delightful book tells the humorous story of a king who happily ruled over a small country. He loved his subjects and his friends and, most especially, his daughter. But one day a visit from a stranger changed the king's whole life. He suddenly became ashamed of himself and his tiny kingdom, and he strated to become ambitious. His ambition grew and grew as he became a wealthy, powerful king, one who was far too busy to pay attention to his subjects, his friends, and his little girl. He had simply forgotten what was most important in his life - that is, until something happened to remind him - just in time. Moderate creasing and tiny closed tears along edges of dust-jacket. DJ in overall good- to good, binding and interior in very good condition. Bookseller Inventory #
