About this Item

SIGNED and INSCRIBED FIRST EDITION hardcover book with mylar-mounted dust jacket in very good condition. Dust jacket shows some very faint corner wear and bumping to the spine, as well as a faint smudge on the right 'eye' of the moon on the front cover, though it is otherwise bright and clean. Boards are clean and solid, with some light bumping to the spine visible. Hinges are strong, and binding is tight and sound. Page block is square and clean, and interior pages are crisp, clean and unmarked, save for Maurice Sendak's signature, inscription and date (September 1995) written in neat blue ink on the title page. It seems that the previous owner has inked out their name from the inscription with a black smudge, though it is still slightly legible beneath the muddled color. Overall, a beautiful copy of a rare title. We ship same to next business day, and we have great customer service! Size: 4to- Oblong. Bookseller Inventory # 42598

About this title

Synopsis:

We are all in the dumps
For diamonds are thumps
The kittens are gone to St. Paul's!
The baby is bit
The moon's in a fit
And the houses are built
Without walls

Jack and Guy
Went out in the Rye
And they found a little boy
With one black eye
Come says Jack let's knock
Him on the head
No says Guy
Let's buy him some bread
You buy one loaf
And I'll buy two
And we'll bring him up
As other folk do

Two traditional rhymes from Mother Goose, ingeniously joined and interpreted by Maurice Sendak.
