Octavo, 161pp., with profuse b/w drawings by Joseph Schindelman. The true first edition (the English edition was not published until 1967), first issue, with six lines of printing information on the last page, a price of $3.95 on the dustjacket, mustard yellow endpapers, and no ISBN on the rear dustjacket panel. As called for in the first edition, the Oompa-Loompas are black and African, not orange or white. Just about fine, with no names, inscriptions, soil, etc., bound in burgundy cloth with the title medallion stamped in blind on the front panel and the spine title in gilt, with a possible faint hint of fingermarks on the rear panel near the outer margin. The dustjacket is complete and without tears or nicks, though there is a small triangular crease at the top of the front dustjacket flap. However, the jacket shows soil and foxing on both front and back, and its present "as-found" condition could  -- and should -- be upgraded by a specialist in dustjacket restoration.

Small folio, (approx. 12 1/2" x 9 1/2", 32cm x 24cm), 28pp.. the third in the series of "Watchbird" books in which Munro Leaf  tries to instill good behaviour in the young -- "learning to be pleasant members of society", as he says in his foreword.  Horrid children (before they learn better) include the full-mouth, the pouter, the not-so, the flitter, the won't-try, the know-it-all, the messy, the won't-wait, the snooty, the borrower, the flipperty, and the plotter -- each one receiving two full pages of red and black illustrations by the author. Internally fine, unread and just about as new, bound in blue cloth on boards with very slight bumping to spine ends and a price-clipped and mildly edge-rubbed dustjacket with a few smudges on the rear panel. Overall, just about fine.
