5.5" x 8.5". 529 pages. The endpapers are covered in the front cover, by part of the dust jacket which has been glued in over the beautiful map of the Mythical country and the surrounding states. There is a book plate declaring the previous owner and the name of the Library from which it was withdrawn. The back endpapers are not as bad, there is residue of a check-out sheet on the left, but just taped along the top, and on the inside of the back cover is a library pocket. On the up-side, this is a first edition, clean, tight pages. Minor shelf wear to the cover (besides the library sticker). The spine is slightly relaxed, but on the whole, a very nice copy. This is the book from which Steven King stole the Great Bear in his Gunslinger series. If you have read those stories, this is a must-read for you. Richard Adams, The Author of Shardik, also wrote Watership Down. Our book number 708.
