London, Faber & Faber, 1968. First Edition. First Impression. Hardback. A fine book in a near fine jacket. Inscribed by Hughes thus: 'For Eleanor from Ted Hughes Nov. 3rd 1971'. Uncommon inscribed, a lovely copy. Basis for the acclaimed film The Iron Giant and a beloved children's book. A little toning to the wrapper, mostly near the spine, otherwise a lovely copy.
