A charming first edition/first printing in Near Fine condition, little rubbing and bumping to cloth spine in a Very Good+, edgeworn dust-jacket.
Set "in the days when monsters and giants and fairy folk lived in England," Margaret Hodges recounts the battle between St. George and the Dragon - a creature so huge and fearsome that his tail "swept the land behind him for almost half a mile". (from the dust-jacket)
