Pictorial endpapers; b&w illustrations throughout.

First edition. A remarkably bright first edition copy of the book that inspired the beloved Disney movie! When Pongo and Missis’ new pups are stolen away to the fur farm owned by Cruella de Vil, though their human owners may be hapless, the dalmatians turn to the Starlight Bark. After enlisting the aid of their fellow canines, they rescue not only their pups, but a total of 101 dalmatians!
