Catalogue Note

ONE OF THE MOST SOUGHT-AFTER CHILDREN'S BOOKS PUBLISHED IN AMERICA. The rare first printing, with "First Impression, April, 1908" on the copyright page, and in the slightly rarer pale brown cloth binding. Although films were made of the book in 1919 and 1934, it was a made-for-television film of 1985 that brought the book to the attention of a large and devoted coterie of readers in the United States, Canada (where the novel is set) and Japan.
