Grishin, noted as the "designer". Small hardcover in jacket, as pictured. Undated, but with no mention of the 1962 movie, filmed in 1961; originally published in Russian in 1928. Light wear to book, minor bumping to corners; jacket with several tears & large chips, scuffs. Text clean; [285], [3] pages. . First Edition in English. Hard Cover. Very Good/Good. Illus. by N. Grishin (?). 4¾" by 6¾".
