About This Item

Boston: Houghton Mifflin Company, 1941. First Edition. Very Good. First edition, first printing with 1941 listed on the title page. Bound in publisher's red/orange cloth stamped in dark brown. Very Good. Light fading, light edge wear and several faint scratches to cloth. Corner clipped from pictorial front free end paper, short closed tear to bottom margin of title page not affecting any text. Previous owner name written in "This book belongs to" line. Light thumbing, toning and occasional soiling to pages. Lacking the dust jacket. A nice first printing of this beloved classic.

Synopsis

In this, the original book about the curious monkey, George is taken from the jungle by the man in the yellow hat to live in a new home, but--oh, what happened! Though trying to be good, George is still very curious and takes a swim in the ocean, escapes from jail, and goes for a flying ride on a bunch of balloons. This treasured classic is where it all began for the curious, loveable monkey and is a must have for any children's book collection.
