The Land of Green Ginger. [Unique copy?]

Harmondsworth: Puffin, 1975. First printing of this edition. Paperback. 157pp. This is an unread copy from the printer's stock. It is very fresh with a square spine and no foxing inside. The only trace of its long storage is a smidgeon of pale foxing to the closed top edge. The copyright page states 'This version published by Puffin Books in 1975', without explaining in what way it differs from the 1970 and 1972 reprints of the 1966 Puffin edition. However, it turns out that this, the 1975 printing, has 32 fewer pages than the earlier Puffins (which had 189pp), so the text has been considerably cut. Furthermore, the 1975 copies which I have seen no longer have Ardizzone's cover, but one by Barbara Brown. So, quite aside from its remarkable condition, this is perhaps an unique copy, the printer's proof of the 1975 text, still using the Ardizzone cover. Fine. Item #19759071
