First printing of Winter's best and scarcest book, a beautiful copy, very difficult to find in anything better than good condition.
A fantasy trip taken by little Billy (who had a pop-gun), this book immediately brings to mind similar books by Maurice Sendak in which little boys navigate fantastical landscapes half a century later, such as WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE and IN THE NIGHT KITCHEN. An excellent copy of this fantasy and very scarce as such.
Boston and New York: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1912. 10.5'' x 8''. Original quarter tan cloth, grey paper boards with pictorial paste-on. Green pictorial endpapers. Illustrated by Winter with 8 fabulous color plates, plus line illustrations in-text. 61,  pages. Only slight wear and soiling to boards.
