There is some very beginning toning to the edges of the book covers. The front endpaper has been neatly excised by the previous owner - with a barely visible stub. The text pages are clean and bright. The dust jacket has several small edge nicks and tears along with several small to smallish edge chips missing. The dust jacket includes the correct points for a first edition according to Baumgarten (Green cloth binding, Harper & Brothers imprint, dated 1956, with a dust jacket that includes a $2.50 price on the front flap). There is some beginning toning / foxing to the dust jacket, mostly to the front flap. "When her father decided that Anna Lavinia's horizon needed broadening, he hit on the simple plan of tearing down part of the garden wall to give her a new point of view. Squarely in the middle of her new viewpoint rose De Pond Hill, and on a lavender blue day Anna Lavinia set out to explore it. What lay on the other side at once involved her in as many mysteries as a nest of boxes, and together with a new friend, toby, she began to unravel them all in a wonderful upside down world." This book continues the adventures of Anna Lavinia, and her menagerie of animals, first met in Beyond the Pawpaw Tree. "Palmer Brown (1920–2012) was born in Chicago and attended Swarthmore and the University of Pennsylvania. He was the author and illustrator of five books for children: Something for Christmas, Beyond the Pawpaw Trees and its sequel The Silver Nutmeg, Cheerful, and Hickory—all published by The New York Review Children’s Collection."
