Item Description: Harper & Row, New York, 1963. First edition of Sendak's celebrated and controversial picture book. His fable of rebellion and escape was criticized upon publication as too confusing and scary for children, but Where The Wild Things Are appealed to its audience on a primal level, and won the Caldecott Medal in 1964. Fifty years later, it remains a bestseller, and Sendak's iconic illustrations are part of the imaginary landscape of American childhood. "'And now,' cried Max, 'let the wild rumpus start!'" This copy has all first edition points: the publisher's price of $3.50, the correct code on the front flap, and jacket copy with no mention of the Caldecott Medal or the New York Times Best Illustrated Award. It was customary for bookstores to apply Caldecott stickers to their copies of the winning books each year; later printings would have the medal embossed on the front panel of the jacket. This copy once had the medal affixed as a sticker, underscoring its priority. A very good copy of one of the greatest children's books. Oblong quarto, original grey cloth over paper pictorial boards, patterned endpapers, original unclipped pictorial dust jacket. Light soiling to jacket, inobtrusive early tape repairs, small chip to head of spine. Faint trace of Caldecott sticker to front panel. Bookseller Inventory # 100456

Item Description: New York: Harper & Row, 1963, 1963. Oblong quarto. Original cloth-backed pictorial paper boards. With the Sendak designed dust jacket. Housed in a blue quarter morocco solander box made by The Chelsea Bindery. Trivial bump to the top edge but an excellent copy in the nicked and lightly spotted, price-clipped dust jacket with a number of brown marks from some liquid having been splashed. Illustrated by Sendak. First edition, first printing, first issue. There seem to be multiple issues of the first printing of this elusive and important book. Variations in price occur throughout the later states but have no bearing on the status of the true first issue. Primacy is established through the text of the blurb which, as in the present copy, makes no mention of the Caldecott Award bestowed upon the book on publication. The winning of such a prestigious prize compelled the publishers to recall the entire edition and change the text on the dust wrapper to include the achievement. Copies therefore with the original blurb are rare and are indubitably the earliest. Bookseller Inventory # 41539
