About this Item

Very fine, clean, crisp and unread first printing of this beautifully produced Abrams book. SIGNED boldly with their names only by Froud and Berk on a special large illustrated Goblin bookplate with upside down goblins looking over, and the first of the many goblin annotations and notes which continue humorously throughout the book.they have much to say! Bound in wonderful illustrated padded boards with wrap-around art work, decorative endpapers of swirling marble patterns where sharp young eyes can spot hidden goblins. 'Goblins' names, pictures and describes the habitats, known history and indications of presence of all the species of goblins.with the derogatory notes of other goblins, or notes of approval on their own bios. These goblins are not shy and their two creators are extravagantly talented. Wonderful artwork and great and funny text. Anti-Goblin Device in attached envelope at the back. You won't want to use it! I found the Goblin-Realm a delightful place to be!. Bookseller Inventory # 3146
