ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: SHARKS & OTHER SEA MONSTERS: THE DELUXE EDITION - Rare Pristine Copy of The Deluxe Slipcased Edition: Numbered And Signed by Matthew Reinhart And Robert Sabuda
1st Printing. Signed. Unpaginated. Published in 2006. The celebrated pop-up artists' second collaborative effort on subject. Deluxe Slipcased Edition of 300 numbered and signed copies. Should not be confused with the regular trade edition. The Deluxe Edition is now rare. A magnificent production by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart: Oversize-volume format. Sea-blue cloth boards with gilt titles embossed on the spine and pop-up hidden in front, as issued. The pop-up appears in the Deluxe Edition only. Pop-ups by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart. Matching sea-blue cloth slipcase with satin ribbon marker bound-in. Encased in sturdy protective cardboard box. Without DJ, as issued. Presents, in its ultimate collectible format, Robert Sabuda's and Matthew Reinhart's "Sharks & Other Sea Monsters". Volume Two in what has become a highly successful, continuing Series on Prehistoric Animals (Volume One was the stunning "Dinosaurs"). An interpretation of Encyclopedia Prehistorica, with emphasis on sharks and other sea monsters. The fascination with sharks is as universal as the one with dinosaurs. Steven Spielberg's breakthrough film was "Jaws", and it launched the summer blockbuster. Sabuda and Reinhart are somewhat scared of sharks (whereas they were not scared of dinosaurs at all, being extinct), and they seem to be saying in these stupendous pop-ups, "Stay out of the water!". What they have pulled off is a Pop-up Museum, the first of its kind ever, and it is truly breathtaking. Thank you again, Bob and Matthew, for making these creatures come to life as no cinematic special effects can. An absolute "must-have" title for Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart collectors. This copy is one of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition, indicated as such in front, and is very boldly and beautifully numbered and signed in pencil on the front board's pop-up by Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart. The front board pop-up appears in the Deluxe Edition only. This title is a great pop-up book. This is one of very few copies of the Deluxe Slipcased Edition still available online, is still in the publisher's original outer boards, and has no flaws, a pristine beauty. Please note: Copies available online command an incredible $1200. No kidding. Offered at Sabuda's original list price, this is surely an accessible and lovely alternative. A rare signed copy thus. 36 pop-ups. Two of the greatest American pop-up artists of our time. A flawless collectible copy.

About this title:
While dinosaurs patrolled the lands, massive prehistoric sharks, giant scorpions, and colossal squid cruised the ancient oceans - most with just one thing in mind: eat or be eaten. In this companion volume to the best-selling ENCYCLOPEDIA PREHISTORICA: DINOSAURS, pop-up masters Robert Sabuda and Matthew Reinhart explore the prehistoric underwater world, where monsters like megalodon ruled the waves.
Full of captivating facts and more than 35 breathtaking pop-ups, this incredible volume is sure to astonish and amaze everyone from budding marine biologists to confirmed landlubbers. After all, if prehistoric coelacanths and crocodiles are still around, what else might be lurking in today's largely unexplored oceans?
From the Publisher: Packed with exciting facts and complex pop-ups, this incredible new volume will thrill everyone - from budding marine biologists and oceanographers to pop-up fans, collectors, and casual beachgoers. (After all, if prehistoric coelacanths and crocodiles are still here with us, what else might be lurking in today's largely unexplored oceans?)
