The Noon Balloon -- One of mine is a plasticized cloth cover, pictorial and the binding is intact. It's a Harper Crest Library binding (it says on the back) and the back description even tells how it was made: "It is reinforced with side-sewing through drill with visible joints.  The cover is of impregnated 56-square cloth over binders board.  It is washable, -damp-proof and soil resistant."
The other one is black clothboard with pictorial paper glued on. It is not so impressively bound, simply sewn and glued. This one says Harper & Brothers Publishers, New York. The Library bound one says Harper & Row, Publishers New York and Evanston
