8vo. Tan cloth boards blocked in deep blue and white on the spine and upper board including a vignette of Stuart grasping a rope. Pictorial endpapers. Illustrated by Garth Williams. A fine copy of the first printing with the proper code on the copyright page. The dustwrapper is also first state, with the $2.00 price on the flap. The spine tips and corners have had some minor restoration, and the edges are a little rough, not that you would notice without peering closely, and it gives a near fine appearance.
White's first children's book, widely recognized as a classic of children's literature. Stuart Little was illustrated by the subsequently award-winning artist Garth Williams, also his first work for children. It is a realistic yet fantastical story about a mouse-like human boy named Stuart Little.
