About this Item

The tale of a poor prince, rejected by a princess, who poses as a swineherd and learns thereby that the princess is proud and shallow. This is the true first in English, published earlier the same year in German as "Ser Schweinehirt." The book is clean, bright, tight, crisp, and unmarked; appears unread. Jacket is clean, bright, no chipping or tears, price intact. Tiniest bit of rubbing at lower front corner. Excellent copy is practically like new. Bookseller Inventory # 90031607
