    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.

    The pre and post sales experience was wonderful and flawless. Heritage has the best in-house operation I have ever seen and their people are not only professional but fun to work with, especially Steve C.

    As for Heritage's online system… Yes the interface is more complex than what we are used to with SAN but what is behind that interface is amazing for sellers and buyers alike. It is real time and for a real serious auction buyer there is nothing better in the auction industry, bar none.
