Description

    Maurice Sendak. Where the Wild Things Are. [New York]: Harper & Row, Publishers, 1963.

    First edition in first issue dust jacket with $3.50 price and three-paragraph blurb on front flap, three paragraphs on rear flap, and no Caldecott medal, nor mention of one on the dust jacket. Oblong quarto. Unpaginated.

    Publisher's dark green cloth over pictorial boards. Original first issue dust jacket. Light toning, rubbing, and shelf wear to the dust jacket. Spine slightly darkened. Bottom of front dust jacket flap clipped (not top where the price is). One very small damp-stain at the top of the rear flap fold. Overall, a very good copy of Sendak's children's classic.
