The front cover has a very colorful illustration of a fairy holding a star, while 3 pixies look on. There is an owner's name with a date of Dec. 25, 1916 on the ownership page. There are 54 unnumbered pages, with the frontispiece illustration in color, with the interior illustrations being in black and white. The pages are very clean, are still crisp, and are tightly bound.
