Nearly fine condition in a almost very good dustwrapper. A retelling of a play that was popular in Cornwall in the 19th century. Although dramatizing the Rumpelstiltskin story, all character and details are entirely Cornish. Large format. Green boards, gilt title to spine. Delightful colour illustrations throughout. Caldecott medal winner in 1974.
Cover edges very slightly rubbed. Price-cut wrapper is rubbed at spine and corners with slight loss of colour and small chips at base of spine.
